The New Criterion, the finest journal of arts and culture in the United States, has published an article ,”The World We Have Lost:  A Parable on the Academy,” by Robert Paquette, one of the three founders of the AHI.  Paquette speaks on the implications of the Duke lacrosse case and of the collapse at Hamilton College of the original agreement to establish an “enduring edifice of learning devoted to American ideals and institutions.”

This special issue, which is devoted to education, includes related essays on the state of the academy by an all-star class of commentators:  Roger Kimball, Alan Charles Kors, James Piereson, Charles Murray, and Victor Davis Hanson.
