Gone for Good Tales of University Life after the Golden Age by Stuart Rojstacze pdf free download. When I originally began to work on this book, I had recently received tenure and I had in mind writing light, humorous guide called something like “How to Get Tenure.” A friend of mine, John Cassidy, writes humorous books for children and adults, and I was thinking of something along the line of his Klutz Press books. Perhaps, following the Klutz recipe, I would include, attached in a net bag, a “useful” item for a professor, like a pipe, or leather elbow pads for sewing onto a tweed jacket.

I was going to collect friends’ and my own humorous experiences as untenured professors, include a board game called “Publish or Perish,” and write a multiple-choice quiz that allowed readers to evaluate whether they were tenurable material. But as I wrote, I found that much of the humor was being crowded out by serious issues that kept popping up, and I had to change course. I had spent seven years working during a very difficult transition time for universities that still has not ended.

While there have been many humorous incidents along the way, the overall backdrop has been one of high levels of discontent. Both professors and administrators have been disenchanted with how university life is changing and the press, the government, and the public have been disenchanted with how out of touch universities are with the needs of society. The two sides, those inside the university and those outside the university, seem to be so far apart that they are unable to communicate. So, instead of writing a laugh-a-minute book about a rather unhumorous time in university life, I decided to write a personal chronicle of this time period.
