Beyond the Culture Wars
How Teaching the Conflicts Can Revitalize American Educationav Gerald Graff249
Higher education should by a battleground of ideas: the real problem, Gerald Graff says, is that students are not getting more out of the battle. In this lively book, Graff argues that the "culture wars" now being fought over multiculturalism and political correctness are actually a sign of the intellectual vitality of American education-but they need to be used creatively, made part of the educational process itself.

"Engaging, hopeful, and persuasive." -- Christian Science Monitor "Everyone to whom universities matter should read Beyond the Culture Wars. . . . There could be no more tactful and well-informed guide than Mr. Graff to the actualities of university life. . . . A passionate tribute to the extraordinary difficulty and worth of learning, particularly in a climate of competing demands." -- Nina Auerbach - New York Times Book Review "Graff provides a useful analysis of the widespread incoherence in university education today, and even more importantly, some practical proposals for overcoming it. His idea of learning communities, based not on artificial consensus but on engaged argument, is most promising." -- Robert Bellah
