In Praise of Weakness: Chartering, the University of the United States, and Dartmouth College.
Trow, Martin
Higher Education Policy, v16 n1 p9-26 Mar 2003
Asserts that U.S. higher education has been broadly successful in serving its society in large part because colleges and universities were created under conditions of weakness, both academic and financial. Also explores the impact of the failure to establish a national university, as well as the ground-breaking decision of the Supreme Court in the Dartmouth College case, which prevented its takeover by the state of New Hampshire.
