"...a compelling synthesis that clears away much of the intellectual clutter in strategic planning and offers a creative, if somewhat elitist, theory that fuses the strengths of the university with the context and challenges of the 21st century."
"The goal of higher education as described by Allen and Allen is based on a curriculum of study for a proficient humanity characterized by excellence in judgement.... The authors have presented a refreshing treatise on the values of education, respect for working toward a more civilized society, acknowledgement of human diginity and the need for more moral and fair treatment within our society. Higher education is positioned to contribute to these lofty ideals and is described very well in this book."
—Alton L. Taylor, University of Virginia
