Format: Paperback
This is a timely piece by a powerful collection of writers and professors! No other work gets at the heart of the matter like Academic Repression! Nocella, Best, and McLaren have compiled a potent work from top intellectuals. Academic Repression should be read by everyone concerned for the future of academic freedom in colleges and universities.

A Kid's Review on December 11, 2010
Format: Paperback
In these times of US Imperialism, global capitalism, and transnational corporations, education and democracy are being depleted in the name of profit and budget cuts. Tens of thousands of students are protesting in the streets in England over tuition increases, while faculty in the US are being fired because of their political beliefs. This book takes the reader backstage of the academic industrial complex to understand the violent repression by administration on faculty, students, and staff. This pivotal book with a star line-up of contributors should be read by all. This book by Nocella, Best, and McLaren tells the stories of women of color, people with disabilities, international scholars, and nonunionized staff being fired and let go left and right. Read now and save democracy!

I found the book to be interesting and engaging, and extremely useful. I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in how dissent has systematically been silenced within the walls of the ivory tower.

Format: Paperback
This collection of essays proves that our higher education system is not immune to corporate influence, government surveillance and overt socioeconomic elitism. Although Colleges and Universities have always been criticized for their limited accessibility to the majority of citizens, this book reveals an entirely new set of problems within contemporary academia. The academy should be the place where critical thinkers may generate new avenues toward social change, but rather students and professors are being stifled. In keeping with the inclusive message of the book, the essays are applicable to all readers and without jargon. Definitely worth reading and re-reading for anyone interested in the hyper-security cultural climate surrounding education and the impact of this climate on our society at large.
