Reviews

... first and foremost, this is about professors-their rights and limits both in and out of the classroom. Should they be able to toss out new, sometimes controversial ideas to help students think in different ways? Are they allowed to say and do what they want on their own time? Reichman's experience as both a professor and an AAUP officer and chair of one of its committees give weight to his arguments. * Library Journal *
Reichman's tone is somehow hopeful, as if he's arming advocates with the history, knowledge and tools they need to fight the good fight - not just for the future of academic freedom but for higher education in general. -- Colleen Flaherty * Inside Higher Ed *
