Promotional Information

Few issues are as hotly debated or misunderstood as academic freedom. Reichman's book sheds light on and brings clarity to those debates.

About the Author

Henry Reichman is emeritus professor of history at California State University, East Bay, and chair of the AAUP's Committee on Academic Freedom and Tenure. He is the author of Censorship and Selection: Issues and Answers for Schools.


... first and foremost, this is about professors-their rights and limits both in and out of the classroom. Should they be able to toss out new, sometimes controversial ideas to help students think in different ways? Are they allowed to say and do what they want on their own time? Reichman's experience as both a professor and an AAUP officer and chair of one of its committees give weight to his arguments. * Library Journal *
Reichman's tone is somehow hopeful, as if he's arming advocates with the history, knowledge and tools they need to fight the good fight - not just for the future of academic freedom but for higher education in general. -- Colleen Flaherty * Inside Higher Ed *
