Academic Repression: Reflections from the Academic Industrial Complex

£18.00

Manufacturer: AK Press

Product Information

Since 9/11, successive American administrations have pressured universities to hand over faculty, staff, and student work to be flagged for potential threats. Numerous books have addressed the question of academic freedom over the years; this collection asks whether the concept of academic freedom still exists at all in the American university system. It addresses not only overt attacks on critical thinking, but also - following trends unfolding for decades - engages the broad socioeconomic determinants of academic culture.

This edited anthology brings together prominent academics writing hard-hitting essays on free speech, culture wars, and academic freedom in a post-9/11 era. It's a powerful response to attacks on critical thinking in our universities by well-respected scholars and academics, including Joy James, Henry Giroux, Michael Parenti, Howard Zinn, Robert Jensen, Ward Churchill, and many more.

"Essential reading for anyone concerned about the stifling of dissent and free expression in academia and beyond."—Uri Gordon, author of Anarchy Alive!

Edited by Stephen Best, Peter McLaren, and Anthony J. Nocella, II. AK Press, 2010.
