Editorial Reviews


Maresi Nerad has taken one department in one university, but what a department and what a university. Required reading for anyone who wants to understand how the contemporary university got to be what it is. Catharine R. Stimpson, New York University
This book provides a new model for institutional history it corrects or avoids all the predictable mistakes and misplaced emphases that have long plagued campus chronicles. For example, it elevates departments and subfields as crucial arenas where academic battles and issues were considered; it makes a reader consider famous presidents, trustees, and scholars in the ways they really worked. John R. Thelin, University of Kentucky
The Academic Kitchen can be read as a speculation about motives. What was the role of prejudice against women and women s interests by male faculty members and what was the role of the great drive for academic distinction among research universities of that time in history? The Academic Kitchen is both a well-prepared factual history and a Who done it and why? Clark Kerr, University of California, Berkeley, President Emeritus
This book is a pearl. Clearly written, meticulously researched, cogently argued, The Academic Kitchen shows what many organizational theorists miss the tie between gender and that legal tender of the academic marketplace prestige. Arlie Russell Hochschild, author of The Time Bind"
