"Well written... The benefit of the book is its bringing together of key themes in the current debate and providing a spirited discussion."

"Burgan has a gift for telling stories and offering reasonable arguments in an engaging, compelling way."

"Full of interesting anecdotes and personal experience."

"An important book in understanding how the traditional rights and responsibilities of university faculty have been eroded... Burgan's wide experience makes her particularly effective in developing her argument."

"Her extensive academic and administrative background informs this insightful examination of the declining faculty influence in campus affairs and, more broadly, higher education."

"Mary Burgan has provided us with a wake-up call about the responsibilities of the professoriate and has given us practical lessons for exercising those responsibilities. We would be wise to heed her advice."

"Mary Burgan's fresh look at campus governance provides a ray of hope for the future of the faculty's role in higher education. She draws effectively from her own university experience plus her leadership in the AAUP to show how both old and new customs in academic life can be substantive in the 21st century. This book will help higher education become a brave, new world in the best sense."
