Pressestimmen

"Academic freedom is under a sustained assault following the terrorist attacks of September 11. The free flow of information has been restricted, unreasonable barriers to academic materials have been erected, and foreign students and faculty have come under increased surveillance. Such actions are a misguided response to the threat of terrorism. Hamstringing the free exchange of ideas and information will do little if anything to prevent terrorist attacks, but will certainly diminish the capacity of the academic community to address threats to public safety. In Academic Freedom after September 11, the consequences and implications of the reduction of academic freedom are examined in a thoughtful and trenchant manner covering many different facets of this timely and important debate." Anthony D. Romero , Executive Director, American Civil Liberties Union "Academic freedom is under greater attack today than at any time since the McCarthy era fifty years ago. These original and remarkably intelligent and profound essays, representing diverse analytical perspectives, should be read by anyone interested in the future vitality of American universities." Jonathan R. Cole , John Mitchell Mason Professor of the University, Columbia University "This is a vital and timely book in view of the insidious campaign under way to undermine the freedom and autonomy of the universities, to intimidate outspoken voices on campus, and to silence one of the few zones left in American public life where corporate/government newspeak does not dominate. These insightful essays analyse the nature of the peril menacing academic freedom since September 11, and suggest strategies for dealing with it." Rashid Khalidi , Edward Said Professor of Arab Studies, Columbia Univerisity "Academic freedom is under greater attack today than at any time since the McCarthy era fifty years ago. These original and remarkably intelligent and profound essays representing diverse analytical perspectives should be read by anyone interested in the future vitality of American universities."--Jonathan R. Cole, John Mitchell Mason Professor of the University, Columbia University "This is a vital and timely book in view of the insidious campaign under way to undermine the freedom and autonomy of the universities, to intimidate outspoken voices on campus, and to silence one of the few zones left in American public life where corporate/government newspeak does not dominate. These insightful essays analyze the nature of the peril menacing academic freedom since September 11, and suggest strategies for dealing with it."--Rashid Khalidi, Edward Said Professor of Arab Studies, Columbia University "Challenges to academic freedom are as deep today as they have been since the McCarthy era. They come not only from political attacks and security concerns but from structural transformations in higher education. All those who care about knowledge and the university need to pay attention. This book is one of the best places to start."--Craig Calhoun, President, Social Science Research Council
