Description

On Higher Education is about the consequences of the student revolt of the 1960's and the decline of faculty influence. This shift from emphasis on academic merit to student consumerism is one of two great reversals of direction in the history of American higher education. This is a book for those curious about our society and its institutions and for all who share a civic concern about the society's future.
