Professor Epstein, a political scientist at the University of Wisconsin, Madison, has undertaken an important and formidable task in Governing the University: The Campus and the Public Interest: to show how the often conflicting interests of state governments and of campus groups— faculty, students, and administrators—can be reconciled and the uncertainties which presently plague the government of state universities resolved. To accomplish this goal, he proposes the acceptance of the principle of pluralism, which he defines as the acknowledgement "that numerous interests in and out of a large state university have legitimate claims to share in decision-making power or influence" (p. 230). While he recognizes that the acceptance of the principle of pluralism leaves unanswered many questions of who should have what responsibilities for decision-making, he believes this void to be an advantage because it "leaves room for continuous adjustment of power relationships as interests develop and as functions change"...
