Review:

"Dewey . . . thought education could prepare people for life in a democracy only if the educational expeirence was also democratic."--Louis Menand, the Graduate Center, the City University of New York

"Pragmatism, feminism, and multicultural diversity . . . all have at their animating core a conviction that divisions . . . must be critiqued and dismantled."--Elizabeth Kamarck Minnich, the Graduate School, Union Institute, Ohio

"If higher education doesn't start giving citizenship and democracy much greater priority, then who will?"--Alexander W. Astin, Higher Education Research Institute, University of California, Los Angeles
