"...timely and insightful... an excellent study of a pivotal topic for the university community, Tudiver's book will appeal to any interested in social and public policy."

- Chapters.ca

"Universities for Sale is an excellent analysis of the troubled cohabitation of Canadian universities with business. Our children and grandchildren will have to live with the outcome, and Tudiver shows how university teachers must work to shape an acceptable future."

- Dr Nancy Olivieri

"Universities for Sale provides an excellent account of the long and necessary struggle to unionize Canadian campuses. It should be required reading for anyone concerned about the preservation of public education in Canada."

- Buzz Hargrove

"Converting ivory towers into corporate offices may prove to be a bad investment. A former faculty association president warns against big business bailouts for cash-starved universities."

- Jay Robb Hamilton Spectator

"Tudiver's study is a most timely one: the universities' embrace of corporatism and commercialization which are central features of his analysis does appear to be becoming closer with each passing day... it is historically well grounded and well informed, giving the reader a good wide base in terms of which to understand the most recent developments and incidents in university/corporate/government relations."

- Graham Morgan Cdn Journal of Sociology Online

"Author Neil Tudiver makes a tremendous contribution to our knowledge about the development of the Canadian university system. Advocacy and scholarship are integrated as we are taken through the dramatic changes in both the internal and external lives of our universities in the postwar period."

- Douglas Fisher CAUT Bulletin

"[An eloquent plea for an independent role for universities in 21st century Canada. His genuine concern is that our public institutions of higher learning and research do not become the handmaindens of powerful, especially corporate, interests... his summary of developments in higher education is quite useful.
This is an excellent handbook chronicling the various expansions and contractions of the university system as it was affected by war, depression and the 1960s 'baby boom'."

- Fred Donnolly Telegraph-Journal

"...a useful addition to the current debate over the private sector's growing influence within the Canadian university system... presents a balanced history of the higher-education system and useful discussions of the conflicts between faculty and administration that occasioned the growth of unionization and collective bargaining... provides a useful analysis of the potential dangers of increased corporate presence within the universities. Universities for Sale is a good overview of a critically important public-policy issue, as seen from the perspective of a central component, the faculty association."

- Alexander Gregor Canadian Book Review Annual
