Editorial Reviews


“A timely and distinguished contribution to a very important debate. In the years since 9/11, government has become more authoritarian at all levels, with increasing surveillance, secrecy, and illegal actions. In this toxic climate for academic freedom and intellectual activism, a book like this is a useful instrument for talking up and talking back to power’s efforts to silence dissent. It is rare for a single anthology to include such a stellar cast.”—Ira Shor, Professor of Rhetoric/Composition, City University of New York and the College of Staten Island (CSI)

“Absolutely superb. Beyond the excellent coverage of the issues, the sheer number of top critical scholars and academic superstars from multiple disciplines is nothing short of astounding. I see potential here for this to become a defining and must-read, must-cite volume on academic freedom that becomes representative of the critical perspective.”—Kenneth J. Saltman, Professor of Educational Policy Studies and Research, DePaul University; author of The Gift of Education: Public Education and Venture Philanthropy (Palgrave, 2010); and a founding editor of

“This is a compelling contribution to long-standing research on and debate about academic freedom; the role, responsibilities, and the challenges of the intellectual in specific historical settings; and the relationship between academia and democratic public life. Few works, to my knowledge, string together the intellectual orbits of such powerful thinkers as this one does. They are not interested in closing conversations about academic freedom, but in opening them, and opening them widely. The debate is now almost 100 years old and, with rare exception, has not been addressed with the analytic intensity, theoretical sweep, and social relevance of this volume.”—Christopher G. Robbins, Associate Professor of Social Foundations, Eastern Michigan University
