"We often forget about the academic profession and the changing academic workplace in contemporary discussions of higher education. Professorial Pathways provides a well-researched global perspective on the academic profession. It shows how academe is changing in ten key countries and permits us to understand the key to university success everywhere—the professoriate."

"Finkelstein and Jones have brought together a highly distinguished panel of scholars from around the world. Their comparisons and analyses, based on a vast reservoir of data, give us a new and valuable vista on academic careers."

"These case studies from the larger higher-education countries, together with the concluding chapter by the editors of this beautifully presented book, provide a state-of-the-art summary of the worldwide academic professions, deeply variant at the national level yet subject to common and growing pressures."

"What makes this well-written and very readable book unique is that it shows clearly how the crucial issues at stake are not only the subjective factors, such as where it is "better or worse" to work as an academic, but the ways in which structural imbalances increasingly shape the sector globally and reach well beyond the traditional boundaries of academia, thereby impacting on so many other aspects of the lives of individuals working in the field and beyond."
