"This is a dirty book about higher education." So begins Michael Lewis's provocative new book, one that calls into question the conventional wisdom and about the excellence of American higher education. Lewis argues that teaching and research on America's campuses are plagued by mis- and malfeasance. He further argues that these troubles are the paradoxical implications of professorial self-conceptions. The academic claim of moral and ethical specialness, according to Lewis, unexpectedly creates an environment where hack work or even no work at all is tolerated and in some cases actually rewarded. Through his chapters on "The Seven Pedagogical Sins" and "The Bad Joke of Scholarship, " the author traces the trajectory of the effects of collective denial on the quality of education in America. In his final chapter, Lewis offers a series of reforms intended to reverse faculty permissiveness.

"Many persons obtain their first acquaintance with poison ivy or its relative, poison sumac, by being painfully poisoned, sometimes as the result of collecting the foliage of these plants for ornamental purposes, despite the fact that it is generally known that contact with them may produce severe inflammation of the skin. In many localities throughout the country poison-ivy growth is so abundant as to discourage attempts to destroy it in order to reduce the danger of injury, and even under more favorable circumstances cases of accidental poisoning must be expected. The very large number of these cases, however, could be greatly reduced if simple means of recognizing the plants, of avoiding poisoning by them, and of destroying them were more generally understood. As a preventive measure, thorough washing is recommended, since the poison usually requires some time to penetrate into the tender layers of the skin, and until such penetration has taken place much or all of it can be removed. Ordinary alkaline kitchen soap is best for this purpose. A thick lather should be produced and the washing repeated several times, with thorough rinsing and frequent changes of hot water. The methods of destroying poison-ivy growth include spraying with salt brine (3 pounds of slat to the gallon of water) repeated several times if found necessary at intervals of a week or two, pulling by hand or grubbing out small areas, frequent mowing and, in fields, plowing followed by the cultivation of hoed crops. Poison sumac usually occurs in swampy inaccessible locations where the expense of eradication is not warranted. When it grows along the edges of paths or roads or in frequented places it should be cut off close to the ground, after with the roots should be grubbed out or killed by applying salt, crude oil, or chemicals to the newly cut surfaces and the surrounding soil."--Page [2].
