Book review

The clock becomes your enemy when reading this book. The revelations propel you along causing you to read faster and faster to the next line, paragraph, page, and chapter. Must reading for anyone concerned about higher education and the future. This will be the most often quoted research and literature on student demographics for all higher education during the next decade!


--GwAndolyn Jordan Dungy, executive director, NASPA

In his 1980 book When Dreams and Heroes Died, Arthur Levine presented a portrait of a generation of college students without heroes?a generation that turned inward, away from activism and community and toward individual and material gain.

But when Levine returned to campuses in the 1990s, he discovered a startling and encouraging shift in the attitudes of the new generation of students. When Hope and Fear Collide examines a generation motivated by a conflicting sense of hope and fear. While today's students fear a great many things both on a global and local level they are less pessimistic than the previous generation, as they look for ways to make a difference in their world. Campus faculty, administrators, and student services professionals are in a pivotal position?able to nurture students' hopes and help them confront and overcome their fears. Levine and Cureton give them the information they need to make a difference.
