Overview

Inside story and scholarly analysis of a leading sociology department's search, during the mid-1970s, to fill several faculty positions. This was attempted in the middle of the fundamental changes to the U.S college and university market that began in the late 1960s. That sea change is exposed with candid self-awareness and examined in its practical effects on faculty hiring procedure, treatment of candidates, professors' relations with each other and their political stances, and recommendations for other academics in a similar recruitment process.
