Higher Education in American Life, 1636-1986: A Bibliography of Dissertations and Theses (Bibliographies and Indexes in Education), David O. Whitten, 9780313253522


This bibliography provides enhanced access to the richly diverse and culturally significant writings on the history of higher education in American life. In the past, graduate level research on this subject in the form of doctoral dissertations and masters theses has been neglected by historians. This book helps bring these works to the fore. Higer Education in American Life reflects the breadth and variety of influences which have characterized the history of academic institutions, including curricula, athletics, personalities, and disciplines. This convenient resource is divided into two parts; citations in the first part are arranged alphabetically by state and subdivided by institution, and the second part contains topical studies arrayed under 69 headings.
