I am referring to Academic Freedom in an Age of Conformity: Confronting the Fear of Knowledge. The author is Joanna Williams, director of the Centre for the Study of Higher Education at the University of Kent. She is also an editor at the iconoclastic magazine Spiked.
In this Minding the Campus essay by Rachelle Peterson of NAS, we find out more about the book, most notably that Williams maintains that the greatest threat to academic freedom comes from the professoriate.
My next email is to request a copy!
