THE MARKETPLACE OF IDEAS Reform and Reaction in the American University

by | Read by Michael Prichard

Contemporary Culture • 4 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2010

Michael Prichard's stern, sonorous voice is a perfect match for Menand's critical exploration of the contemporary university. However, Prichard's reading, though lively, seems purposefully cold. While it’s appropriate that he avoid sounding too passionate as a stand-in for the analytical author, Prichard’s tone sounds TOO removed. Happily, though, Prichard’s tone doesn't compromise his emphasis or rhythm. Menand's focus is primarily on providing a full analysis of liberal arts colleges, in particular humanities departments, examining where they succeed and where they continually fail. He does not mince words as he critiques the subjective and often-incestuous elements of such an education. L.E. © AudioFile 2010, Portland, Maine [Published: MAY 2010]
