The American Association of University Professors (AAUP) was founded to advance the professionalization of America's faculty. University Reform examines the social and intellectual circumstances that led to the organization's initial development, as well as its work to defend academic freedom. It explores the AAUP's subsequent response to World War I and the first Red Scare. It also describes the founders' efforts, especially those of Arthur O. Lovejoy and James McKeen Cattell, in securing a greater role for faculty in the government of colleges and universities.

... meticulously researched and absorbing history... * The Weekly Standard *
Tiede has done a superb job of illuminating the Association's early years. But his investigation does more: it instigates further thought. His book should be of interest to anyone trying to come to grips with the role of the professoriate today and with the future of the AAUP. -- Matthew Finkin, University of Illinois * Academe *
A volume worth reading as much for its walk-on characters ("distinguished classicist Basil Gildersleeve") as for its discussion of the AAUP's Declaration of Principles. * Times Higher Education (UK) *
Regardless of one's personal perspective on academic freedom and tenure, this book is a must-read for those in higher education programs and administration. It will be enlightening to foes of tenure and refreshing to those who advocate it. * Choice *
Tiede presents a useful history with case studies of the AAUP's early years. * Academic Quest *
Tiede's work will serve as a resource not only for scholars of the history of higher education, but also for researchers and practitioners who seek to gain a long-term historical perspective and context on important topics such as shared governance, academic freedom, tenure, and due process. * Journal of College and University Law *
What we do have now is an excellent story of university reform that includes a thorough exhumation of the compromises and conflicts that were central to the founding and priorities of the AAUP-all of whose principles and liturgy are still invoked a century later. * Journal of the Gilded Age and Progressive Era *
University Reform speaks importantly to our current moment * New Political Science *
