  • No University Is an Islandby Cary Nelson

    NYU Press 2010; US$ 22.10

    The modern university is sustained by academic freedom; it guarantees higher education?s independence, its quality, and its success in educating students. The need to uphold those values would seem obvious. Yet the university is presently under siege from all corners; workers are being exploited with paltry salaries for full-time work, politics and... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2013; US$ 39.95

    Revolutionary Memory is the most important book yet to be published about the vital tradition of leftwing American Poetry.

Making a forceful case for political poetry as poetry, Nelson... more...

  • Manifesto of a Tenured Radicalby Cary Nelson

    NYU Press 1997; US$ 22.95

    In an age when innovative scholarly work is at an all-time high, the academy itself is being rocked by structural change. Funding is plummeting.

Into this tumult steps Cary Nelson, with a no- holds-barred account of recent developments in... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2002; US$ 43.95

    Know what academic freedom is? Or what it's come to mean? What's affirmative about affirmative action these days? Think you're up on the problem of sexual harassment on campus?

  • How the University Worksby Marc Bousquet; Cary Nelson

    NYU Press 2008; US$ 22.10

    As much as we think we know about the modern university, very little has been said about what it's like to work there. Instead of the high-wage, high-profit world of knowledge work, most campus employees?including the vast majority of faculty?really work in the low-wage, low-profit sphere of the service economy. Tenure-track positions are at an all-time... more...
