Reviews

"The distinguished contributors to this book examine the subject of corporate sponsorship, exploring the influences of powerful industries such as tobacco and pharmaceutical companies........This timely book concludes with a discussion about why preserving academic integrity -- despite the clamorous voices of the forces threatening it -- is so vital to public interest."-- (01/01/2009) "the range of material in Universities at Risk provides disturbing food for thought for anyone associated with colleges and universities in Canada and elsewhere... Universities at Risk correctly identifies and diagnoses many of the threats currently facing post-secondary institutions"-- (10/19/2012)
