Review:

"Anyone who cares about the next generation of the professoriatemust read this book! Its thesis—that Ph.D.'s are "stewards oftheir disciplines" as well as experts in their field—producesinsightful essays with critiques of current doctoral education andsuggestions for change. Walker's four-step approach outlines theway departments can redesign doctoral education to enhance bothprofessional expertise and the 'stewardship' of futurePh.D.'s."
--Katharine Lyall, president emeritus, University of WisconsinSystem

"It has been 102 years since William James described doctoraleducation as 'the Ph.D. octopus.' Calls for reform have comerepeatedly in the intervening years, but none, regrettably, haveevaluated the problem and sought solutions by working with andthrough disciplines and departments. This book proposes ways to dojust that by suggesting goals for making the doctoral experiencemore meaningful to those who deliver it and those who receiveit."
--Donald Kennedy, president emeritus, Stanford University, andeditor-in-chief, Science magazine

"The doctorate must be regarded as a great success story inAmerican education, and yet it is continuously being subjected toserious questioning, if not outright condemnation. Maybe it is tooimportant not to be constantly subject to efforts to improve it.Maybe the questioning is truly an expression of the spirit thatshould infuse doctoral education--the spirit of questioning, ofskepticism. Maybe the current wave of questioning is anotherindication that we are living in times of great change--as ofcourse we are. The Carnegie Initiative on the Doctorate (CID) is anotable effort in terms of the truly fundamental questions thatdrive its conception--questions ranging from what constitutesknowledge in the discipline, to what it really is that the studentswill need from their doctorates to enter professional lives basedon it, to the importance of stewardship of the discipline both inintellectual and moral terms. In this volume of essays,commissioned for the CID, the authors focus on these questions andoffer suggestions to guide thoughtful reform."
--Nils Hasselmo, president, Association of AmericanUniversities
