What’s Going On at UAardvark?
What’s Going On at UAardvark? is a faced-paced political satire about how an increasingly corporatized, modern American university becomes the site of a rambunctious rebellion that turns the nation’s campus life upside down.
Along the way, there are hilarious encounters with a playboy university president, bizarre U.S. military commanders, poetry-writing Hells Angels, foul-mouthed, decadent students, an unusually avaricious corporate titan, gun-toting “Christian Patriots,” a schizophrenic FBI director, hypocritical politicians, a witch-like union leader, and a host of other zany characters. What’s Going On at UAardvark? paints a fascinating portrait of key aspects of 21st century American life. This portrait includes not only the powerful role of big business and its military allies in setting the agenda for major institutions, but the joy-filled possibilities for overcoming this pattern of domination.
All in all, What’s Going On at UAardvark? sets readers off on a comic romp through what has become a serious issue in contemporary America: the corporate takeover of higher education.
