Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Henry Heller offers here a magisterial account of the modern university that shows exactly how weâve reached this point. Taking readers from the early Cold Warâwhen support for universities was support for capitalismâthrough the countless social, political, and educational changes of the ensuing decades, Heller reveals how American educational institutions have been forced to decide between teaching students to question the dominant order and helping to perpetuate it. And theyâve had to do so knowing that all the pressure politics and finance was pushing for the latter.
Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Â Heller covers such key moments as McCarthyism and the Berkeley Free Speech Movement, as well as contemporary struggles including the attempts at unionization of post-doctorals, theÂ National Adjuncts Walkout Day in 2015, the protests in Missouri related to race, workplace benefits, and leadership, and the firing of Steven Salaita for his pro-Palestinian tweets, which sparked a huge controversy around free speech and academic freedom. The Capitalist University is a thoroughly grounded radical history of an institution whose influence and importanceâand failuresâreach deep into American political and social life.
