"Faculty Incivility is a unique and courageous work by authorswilling to 'tell it like it is' and dissect the conflictingagendas, arrogance andyesmeanness that too oftencharacterize their colleagues' behaviors. If this book wereassigned reading for academicians, students, and even parents, thecollege campus might operate in very different ways."
