Review:

"?fills a gap in the literature of the history of higher education...valuable and useful?we should applaud and thank Lucas for having produced a text that many will find enlightening and highly useful?"--History of Education Quarterly

"With economy and clarity?Lucas illuminates current issues of higher education."--Publishers Weekly

"Lucas's book not only provides a solid history of American higher education but also an intriguing look at modern developments?Clearly written and fully documented, the book is a pleasure to read."--Educational Studies
"The book does an admirable job of linking the developments of American
higher education with its European origins, more fully integrates marginalized groups than...many other earlier historians, and is compelling on the subject of curricular history...."--Harvard Educational Review
