    That's the central question of Ackroyd's new book, more a Swiftian compendium of social folly than a novel, satirizing many of today's intellectual shibboleths. Shibboleth is a word or custom whose variations in pronunciation or style can be used to differentiate members of ingroups from those of outgroups.

shibboleth (shĭb′ə-lĭth, -lĕth′) n. A word or pronunciation that distinguishes people of one group or class from those of another. A word or phrase identified with a particular group or cause; a catchword. A commonplace saying or idea. A custom or practice that betrays one as an outsider.

Nor is the book a blueprint for how to reform higher education structurally. “A tightly plotted, Maltese Falcon-esque thriller with reversals and surprises galore This is a fabulous book, a witty and deep critique of the field’s shibboleths.” – Cory Doctorow, author of Little Brother.
