From Our Editors

This book is a report on the state of the crusade against ignorance during a particularly tumultuous time in American History. Many other crusades stormed through the nation's educational institutions during these thirty-five years, sometimes complementing the crusade against ignorance, at other times subordinating it to some other worthy or unworthy cause.
