The Corporatization Of Higher Education, Ronald W. Cox Nov 2013

The Corporatization Of Higher Education, Ronald W. Cox

Class, Race and Corporate Power

This essay reviews recent books and articles that examine the politics and economics of the restructuring of public universities in the United States. The author weaves the arguments together to point to several prominent trends: increased corporatization of university governance and increased dependence on the market for resources previously provided by the state, reduction of full-time faculty in favor of instructors and adjuncts, dramatic growth of administrative personnel, and mounting student debt. The history of these developments is explored by examining the roots of the political attacks on the public university.


Crises In European Integration: Challenges And Responses, 1945-2005, Simon Serfaty Jan 2013

Crises In European Integration: Challenges And Responses, 1945-2005, Simon Serfaty

Political Science & Geography Faculty Publications

The theme of this short collection of essays is stated early and plainly: “In the end, crises have strengthened European integration” (p. 3), and “There has never been more European integration than in the context or aftermath of crisis” (p. 6). These statements are true but are hardly new. The same point has been made by many in the past. This is perhaps why the process “causes both fascination and frustration” (p. 79), resulting in too much crisis talk that, Jurgen Elvert notes, is “inspired by staunch euro-skeptics to back up their respective points of view” (p. 53). “Of all ...

Legislative Supremacy, Kenneth Ward Jan 2012

Legislative Supremacy, Kenneth Ward

Washington University Jurisprudence Review

This essay develops an institutional perspective to consider limitations on judicial authority. Rather than assume that judicial decisions put an end to disagreements about what the Constitution means, this perspective focuses on the political contests that occur after judges make disputed interpretations of constitutional law. This perspective shows that scholars both exaggerate the role of judicial review in enforcing constitutional limits and underestimate the political instability that follows from difficulty in challenging controversial judicial holdings. Together, these claims are the beginning of an argument defending a form of legislative supremacy that would allow Congress and the President to override judicial ...


The Application Of Civil Service Appraisal Methods To The Post-Tenure Review Systems Used For The Evaluation Of Academic Tenure, Blair Norris Boehm Jan 2011

The Application Of Civil Service Appraisal Methods To The Post-Tenure Review Systems Used For The Evaluation Of Academic Tenure, Blair Norris Boehm

Graduate Theses and Dissertations

Debate surrounding academic tenure has increased in the years following the financial crisis of 2008. This comes in part from the unique combination of high job security and variation of duties that those with academic tenure possess. From this combination, the perception of low accountability has arisen in those outside of the profession and calls for more strict review mechanisms have increased. While this has happened many times throughout the history of academic tenure, current appraisal methods from outside of higher education could provide a solution. The civil service possesses similarly unique characteristics and has developed mechanisms for their efficient ...


American Exceptionalism And Us Foreign Policy: Public Diplomacy At The End Of The Cold War, Steve Yetiv Jan 2003

American Exceptionalism And Us Foreign Policy: Public Diplomacy At The End Of The Cold War, Steve Yetiv

Political Science & Geography Faculty Publications

This book offers an interesting foray into an important and timely subject. The author explores chiefly how American leaders have used the idea of American exceptionalism to realize foreign and domestic goals, including building support for government policies. But the work also deals more broadly with rhetoric and its meaning in American public diplomacy and foreign policy.

Conflict And War In The Middle-East, 1967-1991: Regional Dynamic And The Superpowers, Steve Yetiv

Political Science & Geography Faculty Publications

The two books under review here take substantially different approaches to Middle East politics. 'the first book attempts to examine the region by use of theory as well as empirics, whereas the second is primarily empirical in nature. The latter explains Middle East politics primarily from the regional perspective, and in particular, from Iran's vantage point, whereas the former places regional politics within the broader context of world politics.
