    About The Book

    At the bottom of every controversy embroiling the university today — from debates over hate-speech codes to the reorganization of the academy as a multicultural institution — is the concept of academic freedom. But academic freedom is almost never mentioned in these debates. Now nine leading academics, including Henry Louis Gates, Jr., Edward Said, Richard Rorty, and Joan W. Scott, consider the problems confronting the American University in terms of their effect on the future of academic freedom.

    “Louis Menand has assembled The Future of Academic Freedom to better define and delineate what should and should not happen within our colleges and universities… The whole extremely learned yet accessible debate exploits the freedoms it extols, tackling sensitive subjects such as ethnicity and ethics head-on.” — Publishers Weekly

    “The essays are not only sharp, elegant and lucid, but extremely well-informed about the history of American battles over academic freedom.” — Alan Ryan, Times Higher Education Supplement

    “[A] superb inquiry into some of the most vexing and significant issues in higher education today.” — Zachary Karabell, Boston Book Review
