Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
Frightening and persuasive account of the gradual erosion of academic freedom. Academics seem so oblivious that this is happening. Why aren't we taking to the streets? everyone's so desperate to keep/find a job, that's why. Higher education is running scared, a shadow of its former self. This book should be read by everyone in academia.

The book has a definite slant to it, but it a great primary on the state of higher education. As an administrator, I took a little offense at the standard "administrators are ruining higher ed" attitude, but I am used to faculty members washing their hands of the own sins in this manner.

I recommend it to anyone interested in learning more about Higher Ed.
