    1. A superb piece of investigative journalism exploring the encroachment of corporate market values into the university and the resulting implications It is not some kind of leftist corporate bashing, nor is it a wistful yearning for a pure liberal arts model, but a clear headed assessment of how several trends converged to create a market model u and some instances of the problems that has presented The trends specifically mentioned include the reduction of federal spending on higher ed, the birth [...]

    2.

    3. The promise of reading about the corporate corruption in Education was the reason why I wanted to read this book Trust me, if you love academic gossip as I call it , you won t be disappointed There is a lot to read and know and the writer is an excellent job This book is worth the money and time on spends on it Now, why I gave three stars only It s as simple There are no chapters on zionism in the U.S educational system How does this relate to corporate corruption I let you figure out

    4. The majority of this book is devoted to the relationship between corporations and medical technological researchers in Higher Education Her one chapter on the shrinking of Humanities departments chapter 8 is not sufficient to make this a book on the corporatization of the university as a whole.

    5. extremely well documented assessment of the influence of business on educational institutions a bit of a niche topic but if you re interested in how academia can be manipulated by money, this is the book to read.

    6. A great book and a resource about the monetization of education and education resources Definitely worth a read Washburns only problem is that her passion sometimes defines her reporting, this is not an even handed book by any means.

    7. Nice book to read and learn about the new and future trends in the higher education, case for USA Yet, the Inc seems will be found in other places in the world.

    8. excellent really important very depressing really focuses mostly on science technology but also mentions the impacts on oter disciplines.
