"A collection of ten essays that identify and critically examine a number of important meta-professional issues facing higher education today. These issues include: the nature and limits of anonymity in academic discourse, the ways in which affiliation and prestige temper academic judgment, and the role of collegiality in academic life. Collectively, the essays in this book provide a snapshot of academic identity and relations in a time of major technological and economic transformation, most notably, the increased use of electronic media in higher education for both the dissemination of scholarship and classroom instruction, and the corporatization of higher education."--P. ix.
