Fraud and Education gives an informative overview of cheating in examinations in the U.S. and foreign countries and of the current state of fraud in education and research. It differs however, from many popular treatises on the same subject, in that it is not intended as a blanket condemnation of American (or foreign) education. Instead of assigning blame for the prevalence of fraud, the authors point to such factors as growth in the number of persons engaged in education and research, pressures on individuals to succeed, improvements in communications (especially the Internet and e-mail), and in techniques of document reproduction.

Noah and Eckstein have produced a provocative and absorbing book about fraud in the world of education, a topic that many would just as soon ignore. Their observations will chill and, sometimes, infuriate you, but never bore you. At a time when so many people are discussing academic standards, it is intriguing to speculate on just what such standards will mean in a climate where dishonesty is apparently rife. -- Gene I. Maeroff, director, Hechinger Institute on Education and the Media Teachers College, Columbia University
