|Contents||Introduction: the neo-liberal moment in higher education and the need for an academic Caesar -- University leadership in the 21st century: the case for academic Caesarism -- Peer review: key to knowledge as a public good or the academic guild's last stand? -- Macroeconomic knowledge policy for academic Caesars and their would-be regulators -- A vision for the future: the proactionary university as a platform for the academic Caesar.|
|Abstract||Aimed directly at those who aspire to be university leaders in these turbulent times, and written as an academic counterpart to Machiavelli's The Prince, The Academic Caesar explores four themes that are central to the contemporary university: its Caesar-leaders, its economics, its disciplines, and whether academics have a future in the universities. Drawing on a wealth of experience writing about the social epistemology of higher education, Steve Fuller makes a witty, robust and provocative contribution to the ongoing debate about where the university has come from and where it is going.|
