How do academics perceive themselves and colleagues in their own disciplines, and how do they rate those in other subjects? How closely related are their intellectual tasks and their ways of organizing their professional lives? What are the interconnections between academic cultures and the nature of disciplines? This title maps academic knowledge and explores the diverse characteristics of those who inhabit and cultivate it.

About the Author:

Tony Becher is a research professor, recently retired from the Chair of Education at University of Sussex, England. He is the author of Academic Tribes and Territories: Intellectual Enquiry and the Cultures of Disciplines, and editor of Governments and Professional Education.

Review:

"Becher's insistence upon in-depth analysis of the extant literature while reporting his own sustained research doubled the thickness of the material to be covered...Academic Tribes and Territories is a superb addition to the literature on higher education...There is here an education to be had." - Higher Education "Becher's landmark work. The higher education community - both practitioners and educational researchers - need to assimilate and to heed the message of this important and insightful book." - Journal of Higher Education "...a bold approach to a theory of academic relations...The result is a debt to him [Becher] for all students of higher education." - The Times Educational Supplement "....a classic in its field...The book is readily accessible to any member of the academic profession, but it also adds significantly to a specialist understanding of the internal life of higher education Institutions in Britain and North America. I confidently predict that it will appear prominently on citation indices for many years." - Studies in Higher Education
