In this critical look at contemporary higher education, Pasque argues that if a more thorough understanding of leaders’ perspectives is not offered, then the dominant perspectives within academic discourse will continue to perpetuate the current ideas of higher education’s relationship with society.
“This provocative book raises new questions about the identities that are most salient in determining the direction of public policy discourses.” – The Review of Higher Education
“Critical discourse analysis, coupled with the analyses of narratives and conversations employed in this study, is a brilliant methodological tool for illuminating that power and its consequences for practice and policy in higher education. Written with passion and zeal for social change, Pasque’s critique of educational leaders is both sobering and inspiring.” – Tatiana Suspitsyna, Associate Professor of Educational Studies, The Ohio State University, USA
