Americans can't get a good education for love or money, argues Stanley Aronowitz in this groundbreaking look at the structure and curriculum of higher education. Moving beyond the canon wars begun in Allan Bloom's The Closing of the American Mind, Aronowitz offers a vision for true higher learning that places a well-rounded education back at the center of the university's mission. "Aronowitz should be commended for the high seriousness of his endeavor, which sidesteps the comparatively petty canon wars to ask: What is the true purpose of higher education and how can we restructure our universities to achieve it?" -Publishers Weekly "One of the most important books written on higher education in the last fifty years." -Henry A. Giroux, author of The Mouse That Roared: Disney and the End of Innocence "Bold, brassy, and provocative." -Michelle Fine, coauthor of The Unknown City: Lives of Poor and Working-Class Young Adults
