The Commercialization of the University, the Professions and Print Culture
"Confirms Richard Ohmann's position as one of the preeminent voices, perhaps the preeminent voice, speaking of and for the profession of English today...his career offers a visible and inspiring model for mixing activism and scholarship." - Bruce Robbins, author of Secular Vocations; "For two generations, Richard Ohmann's writing taught us how to write. His imagination taught us how to relate language to history. His heartbeat has taught us who needs help; his backbone gives us the courage to give it. These teachings are in this book." - David Bleich, Professor of English, University of Rochester
