Description: In the face of current public skepticism and scorn for higher education, this provocative new book identifies seven core values of education -- service, truth, freedom, equality, individuation, justice, and community -- and explores the degree to which they are reflected in the academic enterprise.

In today's climate, public cynicism toward education is on the rise as contentious social and economic battles are played out on our nation's campuses. To withstand these assaults, it is imperative that those in higher education rediscover and manifest the values that fundamentally exemplify the objectives of higher education. No Neutral Ground is a provocative book that explores seven timeless values of higher education and shows how higher education administrators, faculty, and trustees can incorporate these values into their own practice and transmit them to students and the community at large.

This highly readable book -- by a preeminent scholar on the values and purpose of higher education -- calls on academic institutions to stand up for what they say they believe in and preserve those beliefs against social and economic forces that threaten to undermine them. No Neutral Ground is Robert Young's passionate call to trustees, administrators, and faculty to maintain the value and meaning of their institutions.
