Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"As a collection that brings together the elements of scholarly debate with some nice field work—and includes a retrospective by the greatest of all American university presidents, Clark Kerr. . . . It possesses the great virtue of seriously adding to our understanding of how universities do or do not change in response to multiple and numbing pressure."—Sheldon Rothblatt, University of California, Berkeley

"In this book, Steven Brint has done a marvelous job of presenting the thinking of a number of notable scholars on the future of the American university. It is a captivating volume destined to be the focus of much discussion in academic circles as its distribution spreads throughout higher education. College and research librarians would be well served by becoming conversant with the issues raised in this book. . . . The topics presented in this book provide an opportunity for us to enter the debate and contribute to the building of a vision for the future."—College and Research Libraries
