Description
 
In the summer of 2014, renowned American Indian studies professor Steven Salaita
had his appointment to a tenured professorship revoked by the board of trustees
of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. Salaita’s employment was
terminated in response to his public tweets criticizing the Israeli
government’s summer assault on Gaza.

Salaita’s firing generated a huge public outcry, with thousands petitioning
for his reinstatement, and more than five thousand scholars pledging to boycott
UIUC. His case raises important questions about academic freedom, free speech on
campus, and the movement for justice in Palestine.

In this book, Salaita combines personal reflection and political critique to
shed new light on his controversial termination. He situates his case at the
intersection of important issues that affect both higher education and social
justice activism.
