From the Publisher"It is hard to read Sperber's book without having a sinking feeling about the future of American culture. He has managed to document our national decline in painstaking detail, and the result is an admirable, timely and profoundly disturbing work."
—The New York Times Book Review
"The case [Sperber] marshalls against these places—'schools' scarcely seems the right word—is overwhelming, a devastating condemnation of 'higher education' in America."
— Washington Post Book World
"'Beer and Circus' does a terrific job of illustrating how collegiate sports has shielded the decline in education from public scrutiny. . . .[I]t is a powerful and important book."—The Chicago Tribune
