Traveling Through the Boondocks: In and Out of Academic Hierarchy
Very good copy. No dust jacket -- as issued. Glossy pictorial boards with minor shelf wear and mild rubbing. What is it like to be a faculty member at a university in the United States that enjoys no reputation or distinction?
Book discusses this situation not from the top down but from the bottom up, where the experience of exclusion ranges from that of departments where scholarship gets to count in hiring decisions to conferences where only individuals from elite institutions get to appear on stage.
