    A liberating education.

They focus on how to engage in a transaction, whether a stock sale or a real estate acquisition, instead of on. --Joseph Galaskiewicz, Contemporary Sociology "Liberal Education and the Corporation provides a useful starting point for liberalized discussion of possibilities" --Taylor Durham, The Journal of Higher Education "Drawing upon research supported by the Corporate Council on the Liberal Arts, Useem examines the value of liberal arts education in today's workplace.

    John J. Miller is joined by Donald Alexander Downs to discuss his book, Free Speech and Liberal Education. Science, Curriculum, and Liberal Education: Selected Essays by Joseph J. Schwab and a great selection of related books, art and collectibles available now at

Policy-makers and educators in the United States and around the world should add this.
