Russell Jacoby on American Academia

If you are interested in academic life, public intellectuals, and the New Left, I encourage you to check out this documentary on UCLA professor and public intellectual Russell Jacoby.  It includes some great stories about the University of Rochester History Department, Eugene Genovese's suits, and the failure of academics to write books that people actually want to read.

Watch it here.
