What People are Saying About This

George Keller

"Research has become an indispensable commodity for modern society, and academic researchers are the new superstars and entrepreneurs—with incomes to match. Not since Clark Kerr's landmark Uses of the University has any book beamed such an exposing light on this dark, neglected development, which is transforming campus teaching and administration. Slaughter and Leslie have pierced the smoke surrounding the tweedy knowledge factories of post-industrial capitalism."
