Abstract

Two books by higher education professors analyze changes in academic work as globalization, the imperatives of the market, and external group pressures modify the role of the professoriate. A third book, by a journalist, provides a context for assessing t he first two. This review essay argues that research marketization and prioritizing teaching above research show that control over work is shifting from the professoriate to external groups. The conclusion discusses strategies for retaining professorial a utonomy.
