When Christopher Lucas's classic book was released a decade ago, it changed the education community's perception of higher education. Now, the long-awaited, second-edition of this important text has arrived. American Higher Education offers students a much needed sense of perspective on current debates over such issues as access, costs, academic quality, social equity, and curricula. Updated throughout, the new edition also includes new sections covering teacher education, teacher institutes of the 1800s, and a discussion of the intrusion of a market-driven ideology into academia.
