In a series of stinging analyses, this book examines the current sorry state of higher education. The second half of the volume offers "alternative futures" for the academy, visions that involve academic organizations, public outreach through the internet, faculty unionization, and campus organizing. Office Hours is a roll-up-your-sleeves look at the avoidable disaster facing the modern university.

"Straightforward, unpretentious, immensely readable, and on matters of extreme urgency to a very wide potential readership
-Bruce Robbins, Professor of English and Comparative Literature, Columbia University
"Office Hours is always pointed, often poetic and amusing, and never dull. Nelson and Watt accurately diagnose the serious malady that threatens American higher education, and then suggest the cure. Do read this book-it's a tonic
-Jane Buck, President, American Association of University Professors
"Readers will find the book a refreshingly personal take on the high stakes of activism in the academy."
-Heather M. Steffen, Carnegie Mellon University
