Why did Cambridge University FOLD?
Of course we all know the story.
Were they physically afraid of a Salman Rushdie/Theo Van Gogh personal future?
Were they warned off by lawyers that the court awards would break them and cost them their careers?
Is there a university policy to cave in?
Were legal blandishments just a part ?
Do the Al Saud et al contribute mightily to Cambridge endowments?
Were promises made?
How fast would they have caved in to Dick Cheney, one wonders?
Is Yale University Press picking this up?
