"An irreverent critical lexicon of academic life and culture. This critical glossary--written by a group of Princeton graduate students and faculty--defines fifty-eight terms common to academic life in a style that will prick both egos and consciences. From 'academia' to 'vocation,' 'canon' to 'peer review,' 'discipline' to 'methodology,' the book scrutinizes the often stultifying structures of modern disciplinary life, calls out a slavish devotion to 'knowledge production' as the enemy of thought, and even dissects the notion of 'academic excellence.'"--Amazon.
