University Inc. exposes for the first time the toxic mix of science and profit that is destroying the historic independence of American universities and reveals how commercial conflicts have led to compromised research, a loss of scholarly independence, the downsizing of teaching, and the erosion of the humanities. Drawing on extensive interviews and original research, investigative reporter Jennifer Washburn offers a rigorous and important analysis of the deteriorating state of our higher education system today.
