The author, based on his background, is an education major attempting to be an historian. Amazingly, he proves himself incompetent in both fields. From his hilarious look at the ancient world (my major was history, concentration on the classics, at Rutgers) to his opinionated analysis of the 1960s, Dr. Lucas presents a hodgepodge of factoids, rarely well linked, and with little attempt whatsoever to connect outside the world of academia. I envision him sitting in an office, surrounded by stacks of index cards, grabbing one fact, one name after another and slinging them together. The book is not popular in format, as its turgid prose and overwhelming collection of factoids would scare off the average reader, but also lacks the proper documentation one expects of a scholarly work. I scratched my head and wondered, "What is evidence?" over and over.
Finally, the entire work is clearly influenced by the author's bias. He supports a liberal education based on classical traditions; that much is obvious. He is completely, and explicitly, Eurocentric in his approach.
Before this was written, there was a need for an accessible but scholarly, single-volume account of American higher education. Following its publication, there was still that need.

History isn’t my thing but this was a required book. It was pretty good for its subject area.

This book was a journey through the origins of higher education. It makes sense looking at where we are today, and what directions we still need to go. Great book for every educator...

Good history of American education.
Unnis
a must for higher education majors.
This text is poorly written. It jumps around through time and doesn't provide any historical context most of the time. There are better options out there.
