"This history of higher education in America clarifies brilliantly the problems of the present by means of perspectives on the past; and it does so at a time when our colleges and universities face momentous questions of new growth and direction. Beginning with the colonial colleges, which transplanted and adapted European forms of higher learning to the New World, the authors follow with changes wrought in the early structure during the nineteenth and twentieth centuries. Three hundred thirty years of ferment have brought about a drift away from religious affiliation, the growth of the elective system and technical training, land-grand acts, co-education, the development of state universities, city colleges, and two year colleges, and the evolution of professional education. The story is traced chronologically, in terms of men and institutions. The focus throughout, however, is on certain major areas of concern, such as curriculum, administration, academic freedom, and student life, showing how the conduct of higher education has been affected by changing social attitudes on these matters"--Jacket

That thread of continuity from the Revolutionary era to Vietnam was the fact that time after time, the members of the academic communities sought to resolve the nation's crises constructively. They rallied to the cause of colonial rights and, ultimately, political independence. They supported the aims of their embattled sections, North and South. They sought to influence their nation's responses to the global crises of the twentieth century. And they campaigned to extricate the nation from an increasingly costly military entanglement in Southeast Asia. In all five of these tests of national purpose, the colleges and universities, while not the ultimate decision makers, helped shape the eventual patterns of America's response in an important way
