There are several levels of analysis the writer weaves into a synergistic story line...Summers as sacrificial lamb over political defeats, feminist doctrine that imprisons more than it liberates and Harvard asministration policies that institutionalize censorship and discourage critical thinking. Wow.

I agree with your analysis. Very seldom do academics crop up who are able to write English that is intelligent, perceptive, and operates on several levels. That's probably so because the writer is a "Professor of Yiddish."
That language is a product of a rich culture in which nuances of meaning, and a sense of humor in the midst of trouble and threats, are both deeply felt. And this writer DOES see the multiple levels of humor in the situation of President Summers at Harvard. LOL.
