"For more than a century academics have had unique rights - to speak, teach, and write freely. Central to the case for academic freedom is that scholars must be able to voice their views free of fear in order for society to gain a better understanding of ourselves and our world and to be effective teachers. Academic freedom has always faced challenges. Professors have been pressed to alter their work because it offends powerful interests - both inside and outside the university. Some have been fired or denied jobs for their political views, their criticisms of colleagues and administrators, and their refusal to buckle under corporate pressures to hush up research findings"-- Provided by publisher
"Together the contributors to this book examine attempts to restrict academic freedom and explore its legitimate limits"-- Provided by publisher
