Inside story and scholarly analysis of a major sociology department's search, during the mid-70s, to fill many faculty jobs--all attempted in the midst of fundamental changes to the college market that began in the 1960s. That sea change is exposed with candid self-awareness and examined in its practical effects: treatment of candidates, affirmative action, shrinking markets, and recommendations.
