In Defense of a Liberal Education, by Fareed Zakaria
Why we should continue to embrace a well-rounded education.
This book brilliantly and provocatively argues that the university is much more than a vocational school. The flight from the liberal arts is leaving us impoverished. Zakaria's book couldn't have come at a more valuable moment. - Malcolm Gladwell.
With the liberal arts are under attack, this book is a passionate appeal, for Americans in particular and the world at large, to rethink the benefits of a well-rounded, general education. - Kirkus Reviews
The author's arguments are cohesive, and his accessible prose logically progresses as he builds his case for a type of education that opens doors that might otherwise never be discovered.
