Professor Salaita's termination by the University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign has been a much reported story of the muzzling of academic freedom by academia's business interests. Salaita's clear, concise writing is echoed in Tristan Morris's dignified delivery. Salaita recounts his reasons for speaking publicly against Israel's encroachment on Palestine, which resulted in--in his interpretation of events--the university's management punishing intellectual discourse for its potential impact on private funding. Using subtle variations in pace and tone, Morris highlights the cogent points of Salaita's presentation and directs listener attention to the dueling values between the scholar and a university turned repressive in the face of economic influences. The book is highly suited to audio, and Morris delivers the performance it deserves. F.M.R.G. © AudioFile 2017, Portland, Maine [Published: FEBRUARY 2017]
