The Woodrow Wilson Center Press
In the Face of the Facts
In gathering this volume, Fox and Westbrook sought to explore what amounts to a new moral inquiry without moralizing across a wide range of subjects investigated and taught in the modern university.
These chapters were presented and commented on at a 1995 conference sponsored by the Woodrow Wilson Center's Division of Historical, Cultural and Literary Studies, and have been subsequently revised for publication.
