This book is particularly enlightening for any teacher as it gives a history of AAUP and unions. Any aspiring school board member--community college or K-12--should read this book.

I was there when all this happened and I learned some things I did not know. All in all, this is an excellent recollection of the events that occurred when I was at BAC (SWIC) from 1973 to 1999. This is a must-read for anyone contemplating teaching as a career.

As a retired SWIC Associate Professor, former student of Wayne Lanter, former treasurer of the Faculty Union, I read with great interest of the goings on of the faculty union. As the former treasurer of the faculty union, I personally witnessed the in-fighting of the union, another near strike in 2001 and concur with Wayne's book. The selection of a new president by the board that totally bypassed the selection committee's recommendation, the board driven agenda by people whose concern was their own agenda, and not the student's education. A hard lesson I learned was when the faculty union that I had worked with left me to fend for myself when I needed them the most. I no longer am a supporter of faculty unions in general. Worthwhile reading for those who think there are no politics beyond the classroom door.
