About the Author
Words are the weapons of choice in a cloistered environment like academia, where material stakes are so low and reputation is the currency. Author John Janovy, Jr. has thrived in this setting and knows it well. He has published over a hundred scientific papers, eleven trade books by major publishers, and the leading textbook in his discipline (Foundations of Parasitology, McGraw-Hill, with L. S. Roberts and S. A. Nadler); he’s also written the script for an internationally televised film based on his books about the western plains (Keith County Journal, 1985, Nebr ETV, 16mm and video, 58min; 1986 Corp. Publ. Broadcasting, 1st place in local information programming category). His book subjects include natural history essays (Keith County Journal, St. Martin’s; Vermilion Sea; Houghton Mifflin), high school athletics (Fields of Friendly Strife, Viking, winner of the American Health magazine book award for 1987), anti-intellectualism in America (Comes the Millennium, St. Martin’s, as Jack Blake), and higher education (Teaching in Eden, RoutledgeFalmer). He is the winner of numerous prizes for both teaching and research, including the University of Nebraska’s Distinguish Teaching Award, Nebraska Libraries Association Mari Sandoz Award, American Society of Parasitologists Clark P. Read Mentorship Award, and the University of Nebraska Outstanding Research and Creativity Award. Dr. Janovy has taught large introductory science courses throughout his career; that experience, along with his several administrative positions and service in international scientific organizations, gives him unique insight into the conflicts that often permeate the Ivory Tower.
