This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this volume which is about the close ties between universities and corporations in the U.S. This volume examines whether commercial values have contaminated academic research and diverted it from socially beneficial goals to mercenary service on behalf of profit-seeking corporate interests. It evaluates the effectiveness of measures to address the problem associated with the so-called commercialized science.
