The creation of the future : the role of the American university

"Is the university a dinosaur: huge, lumbering, endearing in its own way, yet unsuited to today's world? Is it a thing of the past, unnecessary in an age of the Internet and on-line learning? In a book likely to provoke people who are loyal to the ideal of the university as well as those who foresee its demise, Frank H.T. Rhodes acknowledges that the university is an imperfect institution but argues that it plays an essential role in modern society. In the process, he articulates strong opinions on a range of difficult issues."
