Revisiting David Bromwich’s Politics by Other Means: Higher Education & Group Thinking Twenty-Five Years Later

Politics By Other Means served as a wake-up call to a great many readers who were astonished at what Nation reviewer Paul Levine called the “senseless confusion of politics and education” in the contemporary university. And though there is much we might say about the Bromwich book, and the extraordinary fact that it continues to speak to the problems that bedevil us, we wish only to say here that the symposium in our next issue marks the 25th anniversary of that book, and brings together a wide range of reflections on our present situation.
