Who's Reading What in Higher Education. Research Currents.
Bender, Robert L.; Riegel, Paul S.
As a result of interest expressed in an earlier survey, a questionnaire was sent to more than 600 professors that asked each professor to identify his or her area of specialization within the field of higher education and provided space for the respondent to list up to 10 books considered basic reading for a student specializing in that area. Fourteen categories were designated by five or more respondents as those that encompassed their major areas of interest in the field of higher education. These categories are: (1) History of Higher Education; (2) Comparative Education; (3) Higher Education; Sociology and Change; (4) Governance; (5) Administration and Organization; (6) Finance; (7) Curriculum and Instruction; (8) College Teaching; (9) Research, Planning, Assessment and Evaluation; (10) The Community College; (11) Student Personnel Work and Counseling; (12) The College Student and Student Development; (13) Adult and Continuing Education; and (14) Teacher Education. A rank-order listing of the most frequently recommended books is presented under each of the headings. (Author/HS)
