Critical University Studies

Acquisitions Editor: Greg Britton

Series Editors: Jeffrey J. Williams and Christopher Newfield

Books that turn a cold eye on higher education to show how it is a site of struggle between private commercial interests and public ones. They analyze how the institution of higher education is an instrument of its social structure -- reinforcing class, race, and gender discrimination -- rather than a tool to alleviate it.
