American national biography by John A Garraty( Book )

"Over 10 years in the making, American National Biography is a fascinating study of the people who have shaped the United States. Why replace the Dictionary of American Biography instead of merely updating it through supplements? Because the editors include new scholarship and people who were missed in the original, especially women and ethnic minorities. Numbering 24 volumes and containing 17,500 entries, the work offers readable, informative, and critical biographies for each subject, the location of their papers (if they exist), and selective bibliographies. Excellent indexes--subject, contributor, place of birth, and occupation--enhance use. This is an outstanding set that will be heavily consulted for many years to come."--"Outstanding reference sources 2000", American Libraries, May 2000.

12 editions published in 2003 in English and held by 188 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

But it is perhaps as a contributor of ideas and voices to the broad discourse of American intellectual life that Columbia has most distinguished itself. From The Federalist Papers, written by Columbians John Jay and Alexander Hamilton, to Charles Beard's An Economic Interpretation of the Constitution and Jack Kerouac's On the Road to Edward Said's Orientalism, Columbia and its graduates have greatly influenced American intellectual and public life. Stand, Columbia also examines the experiences of immigrants, women, Jews, African Americans, and other groups as it takes critical measure of the University's efforts to became more inclusive and more reflective of the diverse city that it calls home."--Jacket
A lever long enough : a history of Columbia's School of Engineering and Applied Science since 1864 by Robert A McCaughey( Book )

5 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 43 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Comprehensive and candid, A Lever Long Enough is a worthy history of an important engineering institution. Roger L. Geiger, Distinguished Professor of Higher Education, Pennsylvania State University:Robert McCaughey's history of the Columbia School of Engineering and Applied Science is an exemplary study of a largely independent but always dependent unit of the university. Begun in 1864 as the School of Mines, engineering at Columbia oscillated from a pioneer leader of its field to near irrelevance and back to national distinction. McCaughey relates these vicissitudes with candor and grace, drawing on his unparalleled knowledge of the university's history. Besides providing a uniquely valuable contribution to higher education history, this volume opens a window on enduring issues of university leadership and technological education
