Erik Loomis, an assistant professor of history at the University of Rhode Island, recently published a review of former Tulane University president Scott Cowen’s recent book, The Inevitable City: Hurricane Katrina, New Orleans, and 10 Principles of Crisis Leadership, in the Boston Review.
In it, Loomis, who apparently has little understanding of the post-Katrina New Orleans landscape, attacks Cowen for promoting “disaster capitalism” (a favorite phrase of the anti-reform clique), particularly in regard to his advocacy of charter schools.
