"For God, for country, and for Yale... in that order," William F. Buckley Jr. wrote as the dedication of his monumental work—a compendium of knowledge that still resonates within the halls of the Ivy League university that tried to cover up its political and religious bias. 

In 1951, a twenty-five-year-old Yale graduate published his first book, which exposed the "extraordinarily irresponsible educational attitude" that prevailed at his alma mater. The book, God and Man at Yale, rocked the academic world and catapulted its young author, William F. Buckley Jr. into the public spotlight. Now, half a century later, read the extraordinary work that began the modern conservative movement.

Buckley's harsh assessment of his alma mater divulged the reality behind the institution's wholly secular education, even within the religion department and divinity school. Unabashed, one former Yale student details the importance of Christianity and heralds the modern conservative movement in his preeminent tell-all, God and Man at Yale: The Superstitions of "Academic Freedom."

About the Author:

William F. Buckley Jr., who founded National Review magazine in 1955, is the author of more than forty books. For more than thirty years he hosted the television show Firing Line, and his newspaper column, "On the Right," is syndicated to more than three hundred newspapers. 

Review:

''Without God and Man at Yale, one could fairly say, the conservative movement would not exist today. Soon after winning national attention with this controversial polemic, William F. Buckley Jr. deployed his youth, charm, and intellect to unite a motley crew of cantankerous intellectuals into a viable conservative movement. Less than a generation after Lionel Trilling famously opined that 'in the United States at this time liberalism is not only the dominant but even the sole intellectual tradition,' Buckley had in large part caused the liberal consensus to unravel.'' --From the new foreword to the 50th Anniversary Edition

''Still correct and prophetic. It defines the conservative revolt against socialism and atheism on campus and in the culture and reconciles the alleged conflict between capitalist and religious conservatives.'' --George Gilder, National Review, ''100 Best Nonfiction Books of the Century''

''William F. Buckley's book with the brilliant title, God and Man at Yale, will kick up a glorious controversy . . . Brilliant, sincere, well-informed, keenly reasoned, and exciting to read.'' --American Mercury
