From the Foreword:
"This book, in my estimation, is one of the most important books focused on contingent faculty in higher education...I highly recommend this book to leaders within unions, academic administrators, faculty leaders - both tenure-track and contingent - as THE approach for advancing equity on college campuses."--Adrianna Kezar, PhD, Professor, USC, Co-director Pullias Center and Director Delphi Project
