"Cassuto and Weisbuch remind us that all reform efforts have histories, including the one to reform US doctoral education. The New PhD recounts that history and presents a challenging set of options for the future. This book is a must-read, one to be argued with, embraced, refined, but not ignored."

"Cassuto and Weisbuch's pointed, innovated analysis and tool box are much needed today. A true reform of graduate curricula has been long overdue. Generations to come will demand universities make changes now and will hold us accountable if we do not."

"I found this book impossible to stop reading! It is terrific, full of ideas both practical and visionary. Buoyed by years of experience in the academy, Cassuto and Weisbuch design a doctoral education for the twenty-first century starting from the fundamental value of knowledge as a public good. Our students deserve an education that brings out the best of their talents, and this book lays out how to do it."

"Cassuto and Weisbuch brilliantly harvest values, insights, and practices from graduate school reform around the country. I can't wait to share this inspiring book with colleagues, graduate students, and fellow project directors across the country. This book is vital and necessary—even more so in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic."
