Rusty Dog, you will appreciate this first comment on my review:

What a silly review. A school hearing to determine if a student violated the school code of conduct is not a criminal trial. The due process requirements of a criminal trial have no place in such proceedings.


I am surprised there are not more reviews by now.

It took a while, but a couple of crazies are out with their denial of what KC and Stuart say.

Payback: I give your review a 10 star rating out of a possible 5 stars :)

That first comment under your review: students have NO due process
rights in a school hearing to determine if they have violated the school's
code of conduct??? Well then, why don't we just go back to lynchings?

If you're going to destroy a student's life without letting that student properly
defend himself (or herself), we might as well just go back to lynchings.

CNN actually posted a story about KC and Stuart Taylor's new book
as one of their secondary headlines at their main web page.

I am reading the story at the link above -- I look to them to try and undermine
the premise of the book.

KC was interviewed on local radio station here this morning. Could not listen as I was already teaching my first block class. In the run-up to the interview the local talk show host (he is conservative) mentioned the first book by Stuart and KC and suggested that people read it as well as their new book.

Have some of the positive reviews been removed by Amazon?

Don't know. But I can't seem to find some of them...

Quasi, I think they are all there, but you have to click on the line that says see all reviews to get some of them, including mine.
Now, soon after mine went up they stopped saying how many people said it was helpful, but if I click on the title of the review I see that it got 20 out of 25 votes as helpful, with 4 comments of varying clarity and merit. Now some good reviews are coming up, 14 reviews in all. I am tracking this, of course, since mine was first and on the basis of advance proofs.
Forgive me for saying here that yesterday the webzine JOURNAL OF THE AMERICAN REVOLUTION announced the 10 top articles of January. Mine on Patriot women who talked back to the Tories was #6. I should have dedicated it to Joan. Proud to be anywhere in the top 10!

My review is missing now.
And you can't see "all 15" of the positive reviews, only 9 or so.
Something bad is going on-sloppiness of deliberate meddling I don't know.
I emailed to say that if they took me down for reviewing advance proofs they should look and see that I had ordered the book already so I am a verified purchaser.
Annoying. And for days when I was up they did not say how many helpful votes there were of my review. I had to click on the title to find out, whereas other reviews told you on the spot how many there were.
I am not suspicious, me.
