Not a chance. He already has tenure at Harvard, which means virtually ironclad protection. Plus he has a slew of previously published books and articles that have more-or-less cast his views in cement. He can’t possibly back down at this point.
(And FWIW, his best-selling book — also called “Civilization” — came under vicious attack by the lefties back in late 2011, for example, in the New York Review of Books. But obviously this assault didn’t knock the PBS series off the air. Must illustrate some kinda “token conservtism” on the part of the PBS poobahs. Maybe we can thank Juan Williams!)
