This thought-provoking book exposes the real crisis of confidence in higher education - not caused by funding problems or increased student numbers, but by academics unwilling or unable to defend free and autonomous enquiry. Government policies introducing programmes of vocational study and educational requirements are endangering a fundamental cornerstone of academic study - the pursuit of knowledge. The challenge this book presents to all academics is to overcome their crisis of confidence and to renew the integrity of higher education as a centre of knowledge creation.
