"Bruce Bawer's New Book Is Terrific."
George Leef, National Review
"An outstanding work."
Claire Berlinsky, City Journal
"The richness of The Victims' Revolution lies in Bawer's crystalline details and lucid exposition."
Peter Wood, Minding the Campus
"An informative, credible and even shocking book...
Reading it -- and when you stop laughing -- weep."
Barbara Kay, National Post (Canada)
"Should be required reading for every humanities student
at a North American university."
Janice Fiamengo, Front Page Magazine
"This is simply the best book yet written on how the corruption
of identity politics insinuated itself into—and then began to
reinvent—American academia. It shows how classic liberalism’s
great aspiration—the free individual free to choose—was betrayed
over and over again for the fruitless and fleeting leverage of group
identity. Bawer’s interviews with the smooth practitioners of
group politics—salesmen who’ve sold themselves first—are
stunning for their pathos. If this book was required reading at
every freshman orientation in the country, it would start a
revolution. It tells a story that Americans must hear."
Senior Fellow, The Hoover Institution, Stanford University
“Bawer scores lots of entertaining points against the insufferable posturing and unreadable prose that
pervades identity studies....a lively, cantankerous takedown of a juicy target.”
