Book Description

Across the western world the academic community is sensing that its practices and values are under attack, and is trying to give the impression that it is a single, united community. However, its modern character suggests otherwise, making it easy for the state to play off the different parts (sectors, subjects, modes of study, mission) against each other. There are signs, nevertheless, that the members of academe are beginning to think in terms of the academic community as a whole, rather than simply of their own sectional interests. This volume will help them do this, by highlighting the difficulties in the notion of 'academic community' - particularly insofar as the effects on the student experience - and by offering definite ideas for realising it more fully in the modern world. Ronald Barnett is a senior lecturer at the Institute of Education.
