Manifesto of a Tenured Radical (Cultural Front)

3.0 of 5 stars 3.00  ·  rating details  ·  5 ratings  ·  0 reviews
In an age when innovative scholarly work is at an all-time high, the academy itself is being rocked by structural change. Funding is plummeting. Tenure increasingly seems a prospect for only the elite few. Ph.D.'s are going begging for even adjunct work. Into this tumult steps Cary Nelson, with a no- holds-barred account of recent developments in higher education.
