"We are concerned in this book not only with how specific governmental actions affect the administration of postsecondary education, but also with how broader societal forces impact the entire academic community. Unraveling the web of relationships between higher education an society is paramount to understanding the academic enterprise and all that goes on within it. The perennial dynamism evident at all levels of American higher education provides fodder for analysts of all inclinations."
"Inquiring into the future of the university, Susan Giroux finds a paradox at the heart of higher education in the post-civil rights era. Although we think of "post-civil rights" as representing a colorblind or race transcendent triumphalism in national political discourse, Giroux argues that our present is shaped by persistent "raceless" racism at home and permanent civilizational war abroad. She sees the university as a primary battleground in this ongoing struggle."
