This work assesses the ethical issues arising from the proliferation of university-business partnerships. Bowie pays special attention to the question of whether such partnerships are consistent with the values of higher education, and examines procedures for protecting university values. The work concludes with an extensive section of readings, including articles by David Noble, Nicholas Wade, and Albert Gore, Jr.; copies of historical documents and case studies; and copies of conflict of interest statements from leading universities.

What Reviewers Are Saying
The book is a well-researched and balanced approach to evaluating the university-industry relationships that have arisen over the last two decades. The inclusion of a number of the critical primary source materials provides the reader with important resources for evaluating Bowie's interpretations.--Martin Kenney, University of California, Davis
