"Myth-busting and merciless, Bob Samuels demolishes cherished fantasies about equality and opportunity in our universities. Instead he offers a comprehensive plan for social change that, if implemented, would radically re-shape the relationship between college, society, and the economy."
-Marc Bousquet, author of How the University Works: Higher Education and the Low-Wage Nation and Associate Professor, Film and Media Studies, Emory University, USA
"Americans tell themselves a number of stories about the role education plays in who ends up doing what job for how much money. A few of the stories are true, but most are recited just to soothe ourselves to sleep. In Educating Inequality, Robert Samuels makes readers face the dark―and shows us that there are ways to make it less scary." -John Marsh, author of Class Dismissed: Why We Cannot Teach or Learn Our Way Out of Inequality, and Associate Professor of English, Pennsylvania State University, USA
