Item description for The Dartmouth Review Pleads Innocent: Twenty-Five Years of Being Threatened, Impugned, Vandalized, Sued, Suspended, and Bitten at the Ivy League's Most Controversial Conservative Newspaper by James Panero...
In 1980, disaffected editors from the student daily of Dartmouth College founded an off-campus conservative newspaper known as The Dartmouth Review. For twenty-five years, this renegade student publication, funded largely by discontented alumni, has made national headlines through its unique, provocative, and controversial brand of journalism. In doing so, The Dartmouth Review has shined a spotlight on the progressively liberal assumptions of Dartmouth College and of higher education, radically changing the terms of campus debate.
This anthology presents the history of The Dartmouth Review in its own words, featuring the student writings of the leading conservative journalists of the Reagan era to the present. It also presents the story of a newspaper under constant attack by a liberal ideology that seeks to silence dissent--and the triumph of that newspaper over those attacks.
Featuring additional commentary by William F. Buckley Jr. and Jeffrey Hart, this volume recounts an important chapter in the history of campus activism, Dartmouth College, and the American conservative movement.

I am SO glad I didn't go to Dartmouth... Mar 10, 2007
While I don't agree with every single position they take, I have to tip my hat to the _Dartmouth Review_ and its writers for their willingness to stand up to the campus liberal establishment and its endless harassment. I have had some hard things to say about my alma mater, but if I'd faced the sort of treatment some Review staffers got, my parents would have been up there with blood in their eyes, and the responsible faculty would have been in a World o'Hurt.
The Review's feud with an incompetent black music professor is worth the price of the book all by itself.
I READ the book..... Aug 24, 2006
This book tells an important story about political correctness on America's college campuses today. It is told in a funny and sometimes hilarious way, as it contains stories about the screw ball left wing professors that populate our schools. Of course much of what went on was college silliness, but the Dartmouth Review has done so much to expose the pretensions of what passes for academic thought today that it can be forgiven. (P.S. the previous reviewer who did not read this book is one more example of the twisted minds out there today, a saboteur on the style of Michael Moore.)
