Failure to quit /2

From Howard Zinn, Failure to Quit (Haymarket books, 1993):

McCarthysm – in which the corporate nature of academic institutions revealed itself in the surrender of university administrations to government inquisitors – was only the most flagrant of the attacks on freedom of expression. More subtle, more persistent, has been the control of faculty appointments, contract renewals, ad tenure (inevitably with political considerations) by colleagues, but especially by the administrators, who are the universities’ links with the dominant forces of American society – the government, the corporations, the military.
