Description
Always on target but never mean-spirited, Carole Cable's cartoons zero in on the realities and absurdities that confront higher education today. Whether it's the professor who tells a student, "No, really, I am pleased that you called me on your cellular phone from your BMW to tell me your paper will be late", the publisher who quips, "If we published many books like this, Professor Haskens, we'd perish", or the researcher who announces, "According to my calculations, the average scientific article has a half-life of three minutes", Cable captures the quirks and foibles of academia with an insider's sharp eye and sly sense of humor. Long a staple on office doors and bulletin boards in ivory towers across America, over one hundred of these cartoons are now available in Cable on Academe, the first published collection of Carole Cable's work. Ranging from such thorny issues as multiculturalism and shrinking budgets to the everyday trials of getting a good photocopy out of a bad machine, Cable's cartoons will keep academia in a perspective for everyone involved in higher education - students, faculty, administrators, parents, and even outside critics.
