PUBLIC SPACE FOR STUDENTS Our basic theme is that Canadian universities are defective as places to learn because most professors are preoccupied with ...

The Red Cross is studied and criticized. The Royal Family is studied and criticized. Churches and hospitals are studied and criticized. Canadian universities are seldom studied and criticized and are worse off for this neglect. This book seeks to repair this damage by casting a critical eye on how Canadian universities work - or fail to work.
