    the inside dope on college today

    If you think college is still the way it always was, has this book got news for you! This book makes the case for the urgency of reclaiming the colleges and schools better than any book I know and I've read most of them. It shows what is going on, why it is going on, and how it came about. If anything, it bends over backward too much to be fair to the people who have revolutionized--or to use their word 'transformed'--the colleges into what they are now.
