Description

This volume is the first book-length treatment of how the 9/11 attacks and the American political scene afterward have affected higher education in this country. It covers topics such as: universities' roles in training counter-terrorism experts, particularly anthropologists working in Iraq and Afghanistan; bio-terrorism research on campuses; inflammatory critiques by the likes of Ward Churchill; the conspiracy theories advocated by some academics regarding 9/11; lawsuits against universities by terror victims trying to get settlements from countries like Iran by seizing archaeological artifacts in American universities; accused Islamists teaching at American colleges, like Sami al-Arian at USF.

Reviews/Endorsements

Reviews

"The book's research is excellent and it is full of detailed footnotes that others will undoubtedly find helpful. . . . This book not only presents well researched factual information, but it also contains legal analysis. . . . To my knowledge, this is the first book on how 9-11 has changed the world of higher education. This book will be available around April 30th and you can pre-order it now . . . You will be glad that you did.'

"At its core, the book is optimistic and encourages American educational institutions to take advantage of a market now defined by globalization and increased competition."—Reference & Research Book News
