Debunking the Myth of Academe.
Shaw, George C.
Thought & Action, v16 n2 p29-40 Fall 2000
Describes how collective bargaining has emerged as an important factor in higher education, with some faculty resisting unionism as a threat to status and dignity. Seeks to refute the source of such resistance, the "myth of academe," or the belief that faculty lead lives devoted to selfless pursuit of knowledge in institutions carefully organized to support that pursuit.
