The first article in the report, "Reviving the Humanities: Data and Direction," by Arthur M. Cohen and Florence B.

Also included are: "The Humanities: Time for a New Approach," by Leslie G. Koltai; "Community Forums: A Boost for the Humanities," by Diane U. Eisenberg; "Work, Jobs, and the Language of the Humanities," by Myron A. Marty; "The Humanities: State-Level Agencies," by John N. Terrey; "Reinvigorating the Humanities: Does Finance Have a Role?" by David W. Breneman and Susan C.
