Review of the Book 'Prospects for Faculty in the Arts and Sciences'
Ehrenberg, Ronald G.

Bowen and Julie Ann Sosa was (see Fiske) and this honor is well deserved. Prospects may well be the most important analysis of the academic labor market to appear since Alan Cartter's pioneering work in the mid-1970s.
