|Abstract||The book examines ongoing changes in the nature of academic labor between 1970 and 1995, with an emphasis on the 1980s and 1990s.... It is divided informally into two parts and a conclusion. The first part provides an introduction and overview. Chapter One - Academic Capitalism - introduces in the key concepts and theories. Chapter Two - Academic Science and Technology in the Global Marketplace - examines global political economic change and then looks at how Australia, Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States developed national higher education and research policies that responded to the emergend of the global market. Chapter Three - Organizational Turbulence and Resource Dependence - presents data on higher education finance patterns for these four countries over a twenty-year period.... The second part of the book presents case studies of various institutions.... Chapter Four - Advantages and Disadvantages of Academic Capitalism - examines how successful academic entrepreneurs assess the advantages and disadvantages of their work.... In Chapter Five - Technology Transfer Strategies as a Response to Resource Dependence - there are presented case studies of faculty who were involved with a particular form of entrepreneurial activity, technology transfer, which is the movement of products and processes from the university to the market. Chapter Six - Entrepreneurial Knowledge - focuses again on faculty who transfered technology to the market, looking closely how their work shapes epistemology. There are explored changing faculty values, norms, and beliefs. In the conclusion Chapter Seven - Reprise: Academic Capitalism - sums up the findings and spells out the consequences for faculty and administrators in terms of academic life at the unit level (center and department), at the college level, and with regard to central administration. There are also suggested likely impacts that increased faculty and institutional interaction with the market might have on different segments of the university, analyzing them in terms of closeness to or distance from the market.
