Books: accountability or academic freedom?

Well, no publisher thus far has bitten on my proposal for an academic-freedom book. I guess David Horowitz's self-inflicted publicity wounds plus the existing books have made it less appealing. But I have some interest in a book on accountability, so I may tap that one out over the summer.

My first stab at explaining the basic argument of one chapter—the tension between democratic and technocratic issues in accountability—appeared to go over the heads of my undergraduates today. Hmmn... time to regroup and see how to present it a bit differently.
