Mine that Vein: Analytic, Predictive Failure in Academe [on Middle East studies]
by Candace de Russy
Despite years of signs of an internecine showdown in Palestine, writes Johathan Schanzer, only a handful of U.S. professors of Middle Eastern studies honestly examined the PLO-terrorist Hamas conflict that led to the latter's taking of control - in a region fraught with the potential for a horrific regional conflict with worldwide consequences.
Schanzer's assessment stands out as a model for exposing this and other kinds of cavernous gaps in academics' oversight of life-and-death topics.Note: Postings in "Campus Watch in the Media" do not necessarily reflect the views of Campus Watch.
