This book review outlines the argument as presented by Louis Menand in The Marketplace of Ideas: Reform and Resistance in the American University that the problems of general education, the humanities revolution, anxiety about interdisciplinarity, and the politics of professors arise from the way in which institutions sustain and reproduce themselves; thus, he critiques the system of higher education through a historical perspective that speculates the bricks and mortar of a system in which professors reconsider and revise their role in the academic world of liberal education.
