Arrived on time and as promised. Thank you!

I believe this edited volume may be the most important book written about American higher education in the last ten years. I hope the publisher reissues new editions every five to ten years because I intend to make it required reading for my doc students when I get my first teaching job. I would recommend this book not just for university administrators and higher education leaders, but for faculty in all disciplines who will be impacted by the dramatic changes outlined by the authors. My only criticism of this text is that diversity is mysteriously absent from the major themes. This is not merely a question of political correctness. Given the changing demographics of the United States, this is a rather serious omission.
