One Hundred Classic Books about Higher Education: A Compendium and Essays.
Fincher, Cameron; Keller, George; Bogue, E. Grady; Thelin, John R.
This compendium by four professors and longtime students of higher education lists what they regard as 100 of the most influential books about U.S. colleges and universities in the 20th century, although they cannot be considered "the" classics. Following the annotated list, these essays provide commentary: (1) The Changing World of Books about Higher Education (Cameron Fincher); (2) Searching for the Soul of American Higher Education (E. Grady Bogue); and (3) Selecting Higher Education's Greatest Hits: Commentary from the Cutting Room Floor (John R. Thelin). A title index is included. (SLD)
