A very clear exposition of why liberal education matters with historical context that closely ties the answer to the evolution of the values of the U.S.A. A reader should be aware, however, that the book is incomplete. Michael Roth does not make it clear how the liberal education in today's institutions of higher education actually deliver the benefits of a liberal education, only that the objectives are worthwhile. Secondly, he does not answer the question of how to deliver these objectives at a price that the middle income, let alone broader society, can afford.
