America anti-intellectual? Now, let's think this out

Carlin Romano in The Philadelphia Inquirer with a review of Susan Jacoby's new book.
the greatest flaw of The Age of American Unreason, a spirited, provocative polemic by a veteran freelance journalist and author who writes books on weighty subjects usually handled by professors (e.g., justice, the history of secularism), is that it feeds the notion of American anti-intellectualism as a no-brainer truth.
