In Publish and Perish, James Hynes tells three harrowing tales of tenure and terror at universities and research institutions. In "The Professor's Wife," a tenured academic is accused of sexual misconduct with a student; in "The Ghost Writer," a prominent historian is pressured to revise a critical biography; and in "The Thaw," a glaciologist is threatened with termination after publishing research that challenges the orthodoxy of her field. Drawing on Hynes's own experiences as a professor and researcher, Publish and Perish is a powerful, disturbing exploration of the perils of intellectual freedom.; 8vo.
