In an era of skyrocketing tuition and mounting concern over whether college is "worth it," "Paying for the Party" is an indispensable contribution to the dialogue assessing the state of American higher education. A powerful exposé of unmet obligations and misplaced priorities, it explains in vivid detail why so many leave college with so little to show for it.
Elizabeth Armstrong, professor of sociology at the University of Michigan and co-author of "Paying for the Party: How College Maintains Inequality," will discuss the research detailed in her book as well as the follow-up studies completed since its publication.
