New Book: End of Academic Freedom

National Association of Scholars

What are the chief forces subverting higher education’s mission, and what can be done to resist these forces?

Addressing that question, three scholars have written a new book published this spring, End of Academic Freedom: The Coming Obliteration of the Core Purpose of the University. The authors are William Bowen, NAS member and professor of Public Administration and Urban Studies at Cleveland State University; Michael Schwartz, former NAS trustee; and Lisa Camp, Associate Dean for Strategic Initiatives in the School of Engineering at Case Western Reserve University.

Look for End of Academic Freedom in a forthcoming issue of AQ in the “Books, Articles, and Items of Academic Interest” section.
