I certainly wish I could have read it before I went into administration!... The threats to faculty governance, potentially to academic freedom, and the professionalization of the faculty, are all issues that confront the newest generation of faculty. They would be well served to gain a background in these matters by reading Gerber's book. -- Robert A. Becker * Journal of Economic Literature *
Gerber supports his historical arguments rigorously, and his footnotes and bibliography will prove useful to those interested in finding seminal texts in the field. Gerber's inclusion of the AAUP reports as an appendix is of particular interest to scholars of academic professionalization. Ultimately, anyone concerned with the fate of the tenure-tracked professor will be interested in Gerber's work. -- Richard M. Mikulski * American Studies *
... Larry G. Gerber brings a career's worth of experience and expertise to bear on his new study, The Rise and Decline of Faculty Governance. The short book is a valuable primer on the history of the professoriate's evolving place within the shifting landscape of U.S. higher education. * Journal of American History *
