A Book Discussion on "Decline and Revival in Higher Education"

The past half century has been a period of dramatic change for higher education. As the classroom emphasis has moved away from a focus on classical liberal values toward relativism and ideological extremism, hope remains for a revival of traditional values.

Hudson Institute President Herbert London, founder of New York University’s Gallatin School of Individualized Study, has written two noteworthy new books on higher education. Diary of a Dean (Hamilton Books) is a memoir of London’s years at New York University during a tumultuous era. Decline and Revival in Higher Education (Transaction Publishers) offers a glimpse into the devolution of university standards at major U.S. colleges.
