Summary: New in paperbackAnnette Kolodny'sFailing the Futureis drawn from the author's experience as a distinguished teacher, a prizewinning scholar of American literature, a feminist thinker, and an innovative administrator at a major public university. Offering a sobering view of what may lie ahead, Kolodny explains the reasons for the financial crisis in higher education today and boldly addresses the challenges that remain ignored, including changing demographics both on campus and across more the country and the accelerating globalization of higher education and advanced research.Failing the Futureis rich with practical solutions and workable programs for change. Among her many insights Kolodny offers a thorough defense of the role of tenure and outlines a new set of procedures to ensure its effective implementation. She proposes a structure for an ''Antifeminist Intellectual Harassment Policy'' and provides a checklist of family-sensitive policies universities can offer their staff, faculty, and administrators. Failing the Futureprovides valuable, no-nonsense knowledge for all those concerned with the future of higher education in this country-from college trustees to graduate students entering the professoriate, from faculty to university administrators, from officers of campus-based unions to education policymakers.SIDEBAR: ''This book should lead to an opening of the American mind. It is possibly the best book on higher education in the last decade. It is full of ideas that one needs to wrestle with, discuss, and chew over in faculty lounges, over e-mail, in journals, and in faculty senates.Failing the Futureshows us not only what we must do, but explains HOW.''-Emily Toth, author ofMs. Mentor's Impeccable Advice for Women in Academia''Annette Kolodny has turned her articulate mind and her marvelous imagination to the world of academic leadership.Failing the Futureis personally moving, with a sharp and honest focus, and it should be read by less
