Ruth R. Wisse, the Martin Peretz Professor of Yiddish Literature and professor of comparative literature at Harvard, has an interesting commentary in today's OpinionJournal. The title is Coup d'Ecole. The subhead is "Harvard professors oust Larry Summers. Now they must face their students."
Her description of this generation of students might surprise you, as might her ideas about which way things might be trending at Harvard. (She even expects the return of ROTC, for instance.)
