Product Description
Product Details

About the Author

William Clark is visiting assistant professor of history at the University of California, Los Angeles, and coeditor of The Sciences in Enlightened Europe, also published by the University of Chicago Press.


"In almost any way that one can imagine, Academic Charisma and the Origins of the Research University is an astonishing book.... Many times the prose is purposefully funny and anything but dry-as-dust academic writing. No summary can do justice to a book so relentless in analysis and so rich in original source material.... This is a brilliant book. The styles and methods may be recognizable, but the whole is daringly new, exciting, and disturbing." - Sheldon Rothblatt, American Scientist "[Clark] makes his case with analytic shrewdness, an exuberant love of archival anecdote, and a wry sense of humor. It's hard to resist a writer who begins by noting, 'Befitting the subject, this is an odd book.'" - Anthony Grafton, New Yorker"
