First published in 1975, this is a book of general intellectual interest about the role of the university in contemporary society and that of university teachers in relation to their subjects, their students, and their wider political commitments. Alan Montefiore offers preliminary analyses of the family of concepts most often invoked in discussions of these problems, taking the central dispute to be between those who hold a 'liberal' view of the university and those who regard this notion as illusory, dishonest or undesirable. Six academics, representing, discuss issues of substantive conflict in light of Montefiore's initial distinctions. The volume is of particular interest to students of political and social philosophy, and political and educational theory.

Maintaining Political Neutrality In The Officer Corps. The United States Constitution has stood the test of time as a flexible conceptual framework for governing the country. The document makes demands on its citizens at the same time it guarantees their rights. Some of the demands are not obvious, but implied. For instance, the Constitution does not contain any language mandating political neutrality of the officer corps, but a politically disinterested military is necessary to provide for the common defense. This concept of neutrality took a long time to make its way into the heart of the United States officer corps' value system. Military officers must maintain political neutrality to ensure civilian control of the military, effectiveness of national security policy, and authority of uniformed leadership. The paper is divided into the following sections: History of Political Neutrality as a Military Value, Roots of Current Movement towards Politicization, Effects of Politicization, Civilian Control of the Military, and Authority of Uniformed Leadership.
