Summary
Higher education reformer Muscatine founded Strawberry Creek College, a six-year experiment using full professors and small classes to teach lower-division students. Here, he offers a radical new design for American college education, drawing on lessons learned from Strawberry Creek. Although a well-established research scholar himself, he argues that post-secondary institutions have become large commercial establishments, selling research and expertise to business and government. He recommends major changes in the education of professors, including reconsidering both the requirement of the book-length dissertation and the current organization of graduate departments. Muscatine is professor of English emeritus at the University of California-Berkeley. Annotation ©2009 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
