“Chekhov & the Irish: The Greening of Russian Drama.”(2006 Studies: An Irish Quarterly Review).
"The research is very impressive and the conclusions are both original and important. Most significant, I think, is the contrast between the English and Irish reactions to Chekhov’s plays, and their greatly increased popularity after the First World War. The resemblance of pre-Independence Ireland to pre-Revolutionary Russia is always interesting, but the article illustrates many aspects of Irish drama, as a reflection of Irish society, from 1922 onwards. The article does this on a small scale, but the depth of the research and the richness of the findings are very important. He has written an article which can be described, in an over-used word, as ‘significant.’"

“Honors, Inc.” The Journal of the National Collegiate Honors Council, (Spring/Summer 2004, Vol. 5, No.1, pp. 63-77).
"Kelly Younger’s “Honors, Inc.” begins with a fascinating discussion of the ‘corporatization’ of higher education. Most of us think of this trend as a phenomenon that began sometime around the 1960s; Younger traces it back at least as early as 1909. He summarizes some of the extensive literature on the subject, which has become voluminous in these early years of the twenty-first century. He then moves to a description of the corporate pressure at his own institution, Loyola Marymount University in California, and he provides an account of how he has been able not only to accommodate these pressures but even to enjoy them. His is a cheerful essay about making lemonade of what many pundits in higher education and Honors find to be very bitter lemons."
