Editorial Reviews

Review

"Cude's writing is engaging throughout, and even his harshest comments are phrased elegantly."

(Brian Martin Higher Education Review)

"The sound you hear as you read his book is not the hammering of yet another nail into our coffin. He's one of us. It's a wake-up call, a heads-up message to ostriches unaware that they may be in vulnerable position. We would do well to heed it."

(W. Lambert Gardiner Books in Canada)

From the Inside Flap

This book lays bare the faults of the Ph.D. program, showing that in most disciplines it is savage, mechanical, and cruel.

Top Customer Reviews

Format: Paperback
This is a significant contribution to help illuminate a poorly known subject. Few people realise that post-graduate "students" actually "work" rather than "study". Yet they have none of the protection enjoyed by students, nor the rights of employees. People in this twilight zone betwixt student and employee are entirely at the mercy of their academic supervisors, who wield sweeping powers. Academic institutions are not idyllic ivory towers of gentle enlightened souls. They suffer the weaknesses of all human establishments, and such powers are open to abuse. This text lays bare this reality and, with the use of case studies, shows just how academic power has been and can be abused with impunity.

Not what I was looking for. It enlightened me on sleep problems. But really was what I thought it would be.
