Synopsis:
Mangled moments of western civilization from term papers & blue book exams. From college students' own authentic and inimitable voices comes a collection of bloopers, malapropisms, revisionist hypotheses, and creative interpretations of history, the subject that "grinds our critical, seething minds to a halt."
