Examines the conflict inherent in academic freedom
Higher education is dominated by government. Throughout the world, the government provides the bulk of the funding for colleges and universities.

Focusing on the American university system, this unique and revealing volume examines the conflict inherent in academic freedom when universities rely on political institutions for much of their support. Can scholars resist the pressure to curry favor in the governmental educational establishment by engaging in research that furthers the growth of the state system? What implications does this have for the quality of a university education? And, on a deeper level, what are the potential effects on the intellectual development of our society?

Top scholars from a wide range of disciplines–education, agriculture, accounting, law, economics, biology, history, epistemology–examine these and other probing questions, marking one of the first attempts ever by academia to look closely at itself and examine potential weaknesses.

The result is a ground-breaking work, providing deep insights into the very fiber of our academic institutions. With an introduction by Sidney Hook, one of the most distinguished commentators on American higher education in this century, this volume is a must for educators in all disciplines, public policy makers, and anyone else concerned with the quality of a modern college education.
