What have American schoolmen to offer in the present crisis of what we still call civilization? There is no more tremendous question before the United States. Howard Jones probes deeply into the proposals of contemporary educational theory, measures his findings against the scale of world tragedy, and calls for a major reorganization of educational patterns, particularly at the graduate school level. His vivid appreciation of the magnitude of the task which faces education and his fertile suggestions for its accomplishment will appeal to all public spirited Americans.
