Format: Hardcover
Campus Inc is a collection of essays by many different progressive contributers which mainly focuses on the corporatization of education and how that trend threatens academic freedom and standards. The essays show that the corporate domination of education is not a recent trend but that big business has dominated universities since the late 1800's. The essays show how people all across the country are fighting for a liberal education that teaches people how to think not just how to make a fortune in the business world and an education that will help students understand the world.

Format: Hardcover
This compilation documents the disturbing trend of so-called "Corporatization" in US Higher Education...includes articles & commentary by Ronnie Dugger of "The Texas Observer" and by Ralph Nader, as well as by student activists themselves, documenting their successes and failures in combating "Corporatization" and struggling to make universities more deomcratic. If you liked David F. Noble's _Digital Diploma Mills_, you'll love this book. If you buy this book and have never heard of David Noble, read up on him also! Likewise, this book makes a nice companion piece to any number of books by Stanley Aronowitz on Higher Ed, especially his books _The Knowledge Factory_ and _The Last Good Job In America_.
Essential reading for exploited graduate students, academic librarians, part-time adjuncts, and all members of academia's proletarians.
