Booknews
Fifth in a series of volumes on the history of Syracuse University, this work focuses on the administrations of John E. Corbally (1969-71) and Melvin A. Eggers (1971-91). Drawing on some 100 personal interviews, it shows how Eggers stewarded the university through its economic crisis to establish it as one of the leading institutions in the country. It also examines how Corbally came into office during a national student revolt and the black power and civil rights movements to face a series of crises, only to resign two years later.
