The Literature of Higher Education, 1967.
Mayhew, Lewis B.
More and generally better books on higher education appeared in 1967. A great number of them were concerned with solving problems related to institutionalized religion at a time when the church-related college in the US finds itself confronted with the most serious challenges of its long history. Several better than average institutional histories as well as a few excellent biographies were added to the literature. Although they were not major literary works, several novels revealingly depicted discords within the academic community. Some of the books on Negro education seem to be of such significance that they will affect the future course of events: International education received more than usual attention from authors. Canada emerges as the most important producer of works on higher education with topics ranging from the undergraduate curriculum to governance and graduate productivity. A total of 124 books are reviewed in varying detail. (JS)
