Higher education in transition : a history of American colleges and universities, 1636-1976 by John S Brubacher( Book )

40 editions published between 1968 and 2008 in 3 languages and held by 1,536 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"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

The campus and a nation in crisis : from the American Revolution to Vietnam by Willis Rudy( Book )

5 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 380 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book demonstrates how colleges and universities have played a vital role during times of great crisis in American history, responding actively and helpfully to all the major challenges confronting their country. The colleges of the land became politicized repeatedly by such momentous developments as the American Revolution, the Civil War between the North and the South, the two vast global conflicts of the twentieth century, and America's controversial involvement in Southeast Asia. Campus life became intensely fractious during these difficult and turbulent periods. Violence sometimes accompanied the campus activism. While there were significant differences in the response of groups on the campuses - students and professors reacted differently, for example - to the crises of earlier times as compared to those in more recent years, there is an element of continuity
