Summary

Gone for Good Tales of University Life After the Golden Age. Stuart Rojstaczer. Oxford University Press, New York, 1999. 299 pp. $22. ISBN 0-19-512682-3.

Using his experiences at Duke, Rojstacer offers a chatty, personal assessment of the current status of the American research university. He would prefer to shift the existing arrangements so that there is more emphasis on undergraduate education.
