The rise of corporatism in the North American University was charted by Bill Readings in the mid nineteen-nineties in his book The University in Ruins. The intervening years have seen the corporate university grow and extend to the point where its evolution into a large business corporation is seemingly complete. Rolfe’s book examines the factors contributing to the transformation of the university from a site of culture and knowledge to what might be termed an ‘information factory’, and explores strategies for how, in Readings’ words, members of the academic community might continue to ‘dwell in the ruins of the university’ in a productive and authentic way. Drawing on the work of critics and philosophers such as Barthes, Derrida, Lyotard and Deleuze,The University in Dissentsuggests that this can only be achieved subversively through the development of a ‘community of philosophers’ who are prepared to challenge, critique and subvert the mission statement of the ‘university of excellence’ from within, focusing on how scholarly and academic thought and writing might develop in this new post-Enlightenment era. Summarising, contextualising and extending previous understandings of the rise of corporatism and the subsequent demise of the traditional aims and values of the university, Rolfe assesses the situation in contemporary UK and international settings. He recognises that changes to the traditional idea of the university are inevitable and explores some of the challenges and consequences of this shift in the academic world, suggesting how academics can work with change, whilst at the same time seeking to undermine its worst excesses. This timely and thought provoking book is a must-read for all academics at University level, as well as education policy makers.

The Future of Nursing explores how nurses' roles, responsibilities, and education should change significantly to meet the increased demand for care that will be created by health care reform and to advance improvements in America's increasingly complex health system. At more than 3 million in number, nurses make up the single largest segment of the health care work force. They also spend the greatest amount of time in delivering patient care as a profession. Nurses therefore have valuable insights and unique abilities to contribute as partners with other health care professionals in improving the quality and safety of care as envisioned in the Affordable Care Act (ACA) enacted this year. Nurses should be fully engaged with other health professionals and assume leadership roles in redesigning care in the United States. To ensure its members are well-prepared, the profession should institute residency training for nurses, increase the percentage of nurses who attain a bachelor's degree to 80 percent by 2020, and double the number who pursue doctorates. Furthermore, regulatory and institutional obstacles -- including limits on nurses' scope of practice -- should be removed so that the health system can reap the full benefit of nurses' training, skills, and knowledge in patient care. In this book, the Institute of Medicine makes recommendations for an action-oriented blueprint for the future of nursing.

Educating students for professional practice is both complex and challenging. Striking the right balance between 'theory and practice' and 'thinking and doing' remains a cornerstone of effective teaching and learning. In the last two decades, social work education has drawn from critical perspectives based on understandings of power imbalances that perpetuate inequalities in social structures and relationships. These perspectives go to the heart of social work practice in the contemporary context where critical reflection is recognized as a useful, meaningful approach used by practitioners to examine aspects of their practice and redevelop practice theory.Giving a voice to the student experience, this edited collection fills a gap in the literature about the student experience of critical reflection as a tool for learning and practice. The papers have been written by final year social work students and demonstrate the application of a critical framework to incidents selected from their field education placements. This has resulted in knowledge building and personalized meaning for students in transition to becoming new graduate social workers.The collection has relevance to social work students, educators and other human service professions where critical thinking is a fundamental part of education for practice.
