From the Editor: Welcome to the United States After January 20, 2009

This issue of Academe coincides with the inauguration of the forty-fourth president of the United States, a historic occasion by any reckoning.

From the Editor: Back to School

This back-to-school issue of Academe features a pair of lead articles on academic freedom, but not in the traditional sense.
