Cover for ADAMS: The Academic Tribes

The Academic Tribes


"The book is a delicious chowder of quips and ironies. One may have heard individual lines at faculty cocktail parties, but listening to all the disparate voices of the university together, one realizes how much we sound like a thousand Franz Kafkas trying to sing a madrigal."--Chronicle of Higher Education

"An enjoyable description (and vivisection!) of the various people in Academe. . . . Essential for anyone who extracts his livelihood from the forests primeval of Academe and who periodically suffers fits on the meaning of it all."
--Choice
