Robert O'Neil

Academic freedom in the wired world : political extremism, corporate power, and the university

Harvard University Press, 2008

KF4242.O64 2008

 

Robert O'Neil examines the tension between institutional and individual interests concerning the issue of academic freedom.  He argues that courts increasingly restrict professorial judgment, and that the newest threats to academic freedom come from the private sector – corporations and self-appointed watchdogs.  The book states that new concepts of what academic freedom is and new strategies for maintaining it are needed, and academics need to work together to accomplish those goals.
