Drawing on 11 years as dean of the Faculty of Arts and Sciences at Harvard University, Henry Rosovsky offers a wise and witty view of America's colleges and universities; how they are run and the challenges they face, with special consideration to each of their "owners"--students, faculty, alumni, trustees, and others.
About the Author
Henry Rosovsky is an economic historian, specializing in East Asia, and Harvard University administrator.
"An extraoridnary gift for discerning major issues... Mr. Rosovsky tackles the big public issues about postsecondary education today-curriculum and the dread canonicity, tenure with its potential stagnation, research versus teaching, the admissions process in elite institutions-in set pieces that are unfailingly informative." -- Linda Bradley Salamon - New York Times Book Review
