Colleges and universities are among the most cherished―and controversial―institutions in the United States. In this updated edition of A History of American Higher Education, John R. Thelin offers welcome perspective on the triumphs and crises of this highly influential sector in American life.

Thelin’s work has distinguished itself as the most wide-ranging and engaging account of the origins and evolution of America's institutions of higher learning. This edition brings the discussion of perennial hot-button issues such as big-time sports programs up to date and addresses such current areas of contention as the changing role of governing boards and the financial challenges posed by the economic downturn.

About the Author:

Review:

"Worthy of being the major new overview of U.S. higher education."

(Education Review)

"Destined to be the standard work in this area for years to come."

(Journal of College Student Development)

"A readable and concise introduction to this subject, it propels audience members to develop an appreciation for the heterogeneous... academe story as a whole."

(Teachers College Record)
