"A tour de force. This exhaustive, extremely well-written compendium on how the 'condition' of the faculty has transformed in recent decades is truly a magnum opus."

"The Faculty Factor is the book we’ve needed for two decades. It describes the composition of the professoriate with overwhelming data on every dimension that planners and faculty members could conceivably want. It updates the authors’ previous magisterial work and goes beyond it with new information on the progress in hiring of women and members of minority groups and the more ambiguous patterns in promotion and tenure. It demarcates differences by field, type of institution, and even previous career patterns. Everyone who cares about the quality of American higher education must read this book and keep a copy ready-at-hand."

"Scholars active in the study of higher education may find this book very informative not only for the plentiful information and data provided, but also for the authors’ in-depth analysis of the evolution of the place of faculty in academia and beyond."
