NAS has posted three articles from the forthcoming fall issue of Academic Questions at NAS.org. They are:
- How Scholarships Morphed into Financial Aid by Jackson Toby Scholarships should be based on merit, not need, argues Toby in his latest book, The Lowering of Higher Education in America.
- The Glut of Academic Publishing: A Call for a New Culture by Stanley W. Trimble, Wayne W. Grody, Bill McKelvey, and Mohamed Gad-el-Hak Too much publishing of too little substance wastes scholars' time, breeds cynicism, and hinders true academic enterprise.
- Scoping Out the International Spy Museum by Ronald Radosh The International Spy Museum presents an often one-sided perspective on the Cold War and propagates the popular idea that McCarthyism was worse than Soviet crimes against humanity.
