Sold My Soul for a Student Loan: Higher Education and the Political Economy of the Future

Author(s): Kirsch, Daniel;
Contributors: Kirsch, Daniel;
Abstract:

With unprecedented student debt keeping an entire generation from realizing the "American Dream," this book sounds a warning about how that debt may undermine both higher education—and our democracy.


• Examines both the causes of student debt and its implications for our democracy

• Offers a 360-degree view of student debt from the perspective of students, graduates, policymakers, political activists, journalists, administrators, and college/university faculty

• Provides a context for how student debt was created as a phenomenon much more complex than generational culture

• Shows there is new hope in the form of a significant, multifaceted movement advocating for student debtors; and that government and banks are responding with new actions and programs
