From crisis to crisis : American college government, 1636-1819 by Jurgen Herbst( Book )

15 editions published between 1981 and 1999 in English and German and held by 445 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The history of the institutional, governmental, and legal development of American higher education before 1820 is examined. This study portrays the early history of American higher education as the transformation of European institutions by American conditions, views the old as coexisting but also competing with the new, perceives institutional policies as expressions of social purposes and economic interest, and points to the innovative impact of early capitalist expansion after the American Revolution. Part One, "Schools of the Reformation in the New World," includes descriptions of a provincial school in the wilderness, Harvard College as the new world's oldest corporation, the College of William and Mary, Connecticut's Collegiate School, and the triumph of external government. Part Two, "Cultural Pluralism and the Great Awakening," examines Yale College, college founding in the middle colonies, a college for New York, autocracy in Connecticut and pluralism in Rhode Island, and the American "provincial college.""From the Revolution to the Dartmouth College Case," in Part Three discusses war and revolution, the birth of the American university, the people versus the colleges, private colleges, state colleges and universities, novus ordo collegiorum, and Dartmouth College and the Supreme Court. Appendices include: 52 degree-granting institutions of higher learning chartered between 1636 and 1820 and the number of earned first degrees awarded by American colleges and universities. Notes and an index are also provided. (Lc)
German influences on education in the United States to 1917 by Henry Geitz( Book )

9 editions published between 1995 and 2006 in English and held by 266 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book represents the result of recent historical research by German and American scholars on German influences on education in the United States during the nineteenth century. The authors deal with all aspects of education, from kindergarten through primary and secondary education to universities. In analyzing German educational influences on the United States, the essays are concerned with reports of American visitors to Germany, as well as with accounts and activities of German educators in the United States. The book shows that in the context of an immigrant culture, the question of influence needs to be considered in an interdisciplinary setting. At the same time, the account recognizes that both Germany and the United States were mutually affected by the development and progress of their relevant educational theories and practices
School choice and school governance : a historical study of the United States and Germany by Jurgen Herbst( Book )

18 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in English and held by 230 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"For over two hundred years, legislators, educators, and public-minded citizens have debated ways of governing their country's public schools. In these debates the opportunity - or absence - of participating in the choice and the administration of schools has been an ever-present concern to parents. This new book from historian Jurgen Herbst reviews these debates and discusses such present-day school choice related issues as racial integration, ethnicity, social class, vouchers, charter, magnet, and private schools in the United States, the former German Democratic Republic, and the Federal Republic of Germany."--Jacket

Requiem for a German past : a boyhood among the Nazis by Jurgen Herbst( Book )

8 editions published between 1999 and 2002 in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Jurgen Herbst's account of growing up in Nazi Germany from 1928 to 1948 is a boy's experience of anti-Semitism and militarism from the inside. It is also a tale of moral awakening." "Jurgen Herbst was a middle-class boy in a Lutheran family that saw value in Prussian military ideals and a mythic German past. He recalls his confusion as some of his classmates were no longer welcome at his school, and his consternation as he tried to reconcile what he learned from his favorite teachers and what was subsequently taught by their Nazi party replacements. His description of walking to school the morning after Kristallnacht is clear and chilling."
