Synopsis
Aimed directly at those who aspire to be university leaders in these turbulent times, and written as an academic counterpart to Machiavelli's The Prince, The Academic Caesar explores four themes that are central to the contemporary university: its Caesar-leaders, its economics, its disciplines, and whether academics have a future in the universities. Drawing on a wealth of experience writing about the social epistemology of higher education, Steve Fuller makes a witty, robust and provocative contribution to the ongoing debate about where the university has come from and where it is going. The Academic Caesar will prove a fascinating read for those seeking new insights into current crisis in higher education as well as researchers and academics interested in the sociology of leadership.

This is an enjoyable book. It is also an important one. Steve Fuller is willing to face the dilemmas of the modern university full on rather than fall back on the usual nostrums. You do not have to agree with him but you do have to take notice. That is a real achievement in a time when we desperately need new thinking on how to produce and transmit knowledge. -- Nigel Thrift
