Throughout the twentieth century, many critics of bureaucratisation have predicted the increasing loss of intellectual creativity through the growth of institutional forms of direction and control. This book argues that this is now occurring in universities - and occurring in ways which suggest that the ability (and space) to think freely will become more and more a matter of access to power and privilege. Mary Evans demonstrates how this is both profoundly anti-democratic and anti-intellectual and provides suggestions for reversing this destructive trend.
