How staff at Scottish higher education institutions are going to vote in the upcoming independence referendum and why two sociologists in the US are calling for an overhaul of the sector are among the topics discussed in this week’s Times Higher Education issue review.

We also take a comprehensive look at this week’s books section, including works on the evolution of bugs, immigration detention and a celebration of our relationship with food across genres and cultures.

John Elmes is joined by news editor Simon Baker, books editor Karen Shook, and reporter Matthew Reisz.
