1. Fredric Jameson reviews Slavoj Zizek's new book. Come and get your geek treat!
2. Cheryl Miller discusses class, race, and fertility treatments in
Babies for Sale.
3. Are you concerned about the state of American higher education? So are Donald Kagan, Peter Schmidt, and Diane Schemo (and her readers), but not Robert Samuelson. Blogland responds: History and Education, The Quick and the Ed, Vox Baby, My Secret Public Blog, Web Diary of a Boston Grad Student, and Not in Kansas Anymore have lots of interesting stuff to say.
(Also interesting is Alvin Sanoff's piece from March which incorporates the Chronicle's survey of high school teachers vs. college faculty.)
4. Stanley Crouch reviews "Will You Die With Me?": My Life and the Black Panther Party, Flores Alexander Forbes's new memoir.
Enjoy your weekend!
