Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

From the Foreword--
"Ms. Hixson's graphic observations are clever and whimsical. They are--in the best cartooning tradition--playful, perceptive, and pointed. They cast a bright light on the marionettes who strut the academic stage. And, except for those in which we stuffy academics might discover ourselves, they are entertaining."
