Lazerson, M. Higher Education and the American Dream. Success and its Discontent. CEU Press, Budapest, 2010. ISBN: 978-963-9776-79-1. Pages: 323.

Has higher education become too successful? Are the expectations for higher education too grandiose? In this publication, Marvin Lazerson discusses both the problems and the accomplishments of American universities with equal consideration. The book delivers a modern-day account of American universities in the twenty-first century. The author tackles topics that range from the rise of the managerial class to the failed attempts to reform practice in the classroom.
