About the Author:

Social critic E. Michael Jones is the editor of Culture Wars magazine and the author of numerous books and e-books.

Review:

"documents and explains, as Archbishop Burke commented after reading it, the 'urgency of the situation' at [Notre Dame] in particular and in Catholic higher education in general ... reveals how the university consistently uses 'academic freedom' as a trump card to 'liberate' itself from Vatican control. But this freedom becomes slavery ... to the power cliques that rule the Anglo-American Empire. ... reveal[s] why the University has become the center of a neo-gnostic heresy in the United States." Omar O'Shaughnessey, Culture Wars.

"In the updated 25th Anniversary Edition of this hard-hitting book, Is Notre Dame Still Catholic?, E. Michael Jones presents the University of Notre Dame as the paradigm case for how dissenters  have devastated Catholic universities in the U.S. They have entrenched themselves, networked to bring in others like themselves, and excluded scholars loyal to the magisterium. At the heart of their non serviam is a resolute opposition to the sexual teachings of the Church. As Dr. Jones phrases it, 'Dissent is libido in academic regalia.'" Anne Gardiner, Christian Order.

"According to Jones it was Fr Theodore Hesburgh, the late President of Notre Dame, who set all the subsequent scandals and problems in motion by his Land O'Lakes statement of 1967 which declared that "the Catholic University must have true autonomy and academic freedom in the face of authority of whatever kind, lay or clerical". ... The subsequent history of Notre Dame shows what happens when a supposedly Catholic university puts academic prestige above its Catholic identity. Hesburgh once commented in frustration that Jones was "a character who makes a life work out of knocking Notre Dame". Perhaps it would be more true to say that he and his successors, down to the present day and the award of the Laetare Medal to Joe Biden, who have proved the real undoing of this famous institution?" Francis Phillips, Catholic Herald.
