In 1951, a twenty-five-year old Yale graduate published his first book, which exposed the extraordinarily irresponsible educational attitude that prevailed at his alma mater. This book rocked the academic world and catapulted its young author, William F. Buckley Jr., into the public spotlight.

WILLIAM F. BUCKLEY Jr. (1925-2008), a syndicated columnist, author, editor, television host, and adventurer, was the founder of National Review and the host of the Emmy Award-winning Firing Line, the longest-running public affairs program in television history with the same host. He was the award-winning author of many bestsellers, starting with God and Man at Yale.Review:
''Without God and Man at Yale, one could fairly say, the conservative movement would not exist today. Soon after winning national attention with this controversial polemic, William F. Buckley Jr. deployed his youth, charm, and intellect to unite a motley crew of cantankerous intellectuals into a viable conservative movement. Less than a generation after Lionel Trilling famously opined that 'in the United States at this time liberalism is not only the dominant but even the sole intellectual tradition,' Buckley had in large part caused the liberal consensus to unravel.'' --From the new foreword to the 50th Anniversary Edition
''Still correct and prophetic. It defines the conservative revolt against socialism and atheism on campus and in the culture and reconciles the alleged conflict between capitalist and religious conservatives.'' --George Gilder, National Review, ''100 Best Nonfiction Books of the Century''
''William F. Buckley's book with the brilliant title, God and Man at Yale, will kick up a glorious controversy . . . Brilliant, sincere, well-informed, keenly reasoned, and exciting to read.'' --American Mercury
