Description

Academic freedom has always faced challenges. Professors have been pressed to alter their work because it offends powerful interests — inside and outside the university. Some have been fired or denied jobs for their political views, criticisms of colleagues and administrators, and refusal to buckle under corporate pressures to hush up research findings. The contributors to this volume point out how governments, corporations, and university administrators are seeking to narrow academic freedom.
