Product Description


'Laurie Taylor has not simply been providing a very amusing column for his colleagues in academic life, and showing that intelligence has the power to laugh at itself. He has also been recording, exploring and entering the fine print of current
university experience in an age of growing intellectual and academic emoralisation... it is to me, like Nelson's, one of the really great columns.'
Malcolm Bradbury

'A future historian could well find Laurie Taylor's column a more authentic source for
what has really been going on in British Higher Education in the 1980s and 1990s than all the White and Green Papers'
Peter Scott, Professor of Education, Leeds University; Former Editor, THES

'Laurie Taylor anthologised is, if anything, funnier than Laurie Taylor's weekly column' Professor Michael Shattock

'Professor Taylor is a liar and a blackguard'
The Vice-Chancellor, University of Poppleton

'A Flaubert for our time? Parodies of academic angst and argot from THES.'
The New Statesman & Society, November 1994 - The Times Higher Education Supplement, November 1994 - The Times Educational Supplement - Busin, March 1995

'..probably the sharpest insider's analysis available of the 'culture' of higher education in this country today, very much the spiritual descendants of Francis Cornford's Microcosmographia Academica.'
The Times Literary Supplement, March 1995 - The Times Literary Supplement, March 1995
