Promotional Information

This is a brilliant, creative, and convincing argument about the basis for sexual rights in America. Abramson's book arrives at a time when individual rights are under attack from many different directions. Given that it offers a spirited defense of those rights, the book is a seminal contribution. -- Ralph Bolton, Professor of Anthropology, Pomona College Romance in the Ivory Tower presents a compelling argument about the erosion of the rights of privacy and conscience. The debate in this book transcends the issue of personal relationships within academia and engages fundamental questions of liberty and personal choice. -- Nadine Strossen, President, American Civil Liberties Union, and Professor of Law, New York Law School Make no mistake, Paul Abramson's book is a serious and thought-provoking examination of the extent to which institutions should proscribe individual actions. Although I do not endorse all of the conclusions, I strongly recommend this book. -- Lord Robert M. May, Professor Lord May, Oxford University
