Recommended Titles
I'd go with John Warner's Sustainable. Resilient. Free.: The Future of Higher Education. I've always enjoyed his columns in Inside Higher Ed, and find his ideas as collected in this volume to be both insightful and inspirational. Kudos especially for the work on making public higher ed free.
