Berlinerblau, director of the Center for Jewish Civilization at the Edmund A. Walsh School of Foreign Service at Georgetown University, started his academic career at a community college. In working his way up from adjunct faculty member to assistant professor and on to administrator, he has closely observed how higher education both meets and fails to meet its highest goals. His book, expanding on the critiques he published in the Chronicle of Higher Education and other journals, is a vigorous defense of liberal education and of the engaged teaching it demands. Berlinerblau’s careful scrutiny of academia gives parents and students insight into the most crucial part of a college experience: the teachers, who, for undergraduates, are likely to be graduate students and adjuncts, more focused on the exigencies of “publish or perish” than on the quality of their classroom performance.
