"This extraordinary collection of essays by young scholars and leaders in the profession raises questions about our own life choices. Taking Back the Academy! sometimes made me weep and sometimes made me angry. It will lead everyone to probe the meaning and purpose of the scholarly enterprise." -- Alice Kessler-Harris, author of In Pursuit of Equity: Women, Men, and the Quest for Economic Citizenship in 20th-Century America
