A marvellous piece of work. Linda Evans' meticulous scholarship and elegant analysis gives us the definitive authority on what it means to become, to be and to do work as a professor in the 21st-century university. * Rob Cuthbert, Emeritus Professor of Higher Education Management, University of the West of England, UK and Managing Partner, Practical Academics *
"In a period of intense change and flux within higher education the need for academic leaders has never been greater. In this context, Linda Evans' Professors as Academic Leaders provides a novel and magisterial account of the changing roles and expectations that professors are increasingly expected to fulfil. What marks this book out is its precision and positivity. While not denying the existence of critical challenges, Evans focuses on the opportunities for the academy to shape the agenda and to reinvigorate scholarship.... Every academic needs to read this book." * Matthew Flinders is Professor of Politics and Founding Director of the Sir Bernard Crick Centre at the University of Sheffield. He is also President of the Political Studies Association of the United Kingdom and is a member of the board of the Economic and Social Research Council. *
