About this book

Academic inbreeding - appointing one's own graduates for academic positions - is a controversial but surprisingly common practice internationally. This book is the first comparative analysis of the phenomenon - the causes, implications, and future of inbreeding.

Reviews

"The book is a comparative study in the field of higher education research which can appeal to the researchers dealing with the changes in academic careers in different countries. With its subject, indeed the book is of interest not only for higher education researchers, but also for anyone planning or pursuing an academic career." - European Journal of Higher Education
