Summary Read First Chapter image missing

"This account of the Lattimore case is the first detailed treatment of successful resistance from the academy to a McCarthy-era assault. Lattimore's is arguably the most notorious of all these cases, in terms of the importance of the target and of the political passions aroused." -- Jordan E. Kurland, American Association of University Professors

This book examines the harassment of the Johns Hopkins University sinologist Owen Lattimore during the height of the Cold War on campus. It moves from detailing the specifics of Lattimore's case to a discussion of the broader themes of academic governance that the case exposed. With his meticulous dissection of this major event in United States academic history, Lewis shows us much about the workings of academic governance.

"Lewis's work adds a new dimension to the study of academic freedom. The popular response to academic freedom issues, to my knowledge, has not been chronicled anywhere. Nor does any author have such good data on trustee behavior as does Lewis. This is a major contribution." --Slaughter, University of Arizona

"The book provides a comprehensive and collective memory about the campus and its various connections with the Cold War period. It is a good reminder and documentation of an important period that a newer generation of academic administrators and faculty have little knowledge about. The research, including secondary and archival sources, is complete and convincing. The case study is important for our thinking about academic freedom both inside and outside the American university." --R. Thelin, The College of William and Mary

Lionel S. Lewis is Professor of Sociology and Adjunct Professor of Higher Education at State University of New York, Buffalo.
