LA Times story about West Point professor and author Elizabeth Samet


Today, Jeffery Fleishman of The Los Angeles Times published “At West Point, Warriors Shaped Through Plutarch and Shakespeare,” an interesting story about West Point English professor Elizabeth Samet.

She’s the author of No Man’s Land: Preparing for War and Peace in Post-9/11 America, which I reviewed for The Washington Post on November 7, 2014 in “Can Ovid and Harry Potter Guide Us Through This Era.”

Having read Fleishman’s article (linked to above), I stand by my judgment that Samet is “clearly an extraordinary and inspiring teacher.”

West Point is lucky to have her.
