Book Review: Wannabe U: Inside the Corporate University

Wannabe U by Gaye Tuchman, reviewed in UK academic press, Times Higher Education, is an indictment of today's academy that strikes a chord with reviewer Susan Bassnett. It did with me and (I hope) will with you.

"tough, honest, highly entertaining - and also a serious examination of what is happening in one typical US state university with aspirations to a greater role on the international academic stage....This book is based on the American university system, but the patterns of behaviour that it outlines will be all too familiar to administrators and academics in universities all over the world."
