Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 088133538X, Paperback)

A focused presentation that is compelling to read, comprehensive in content, and well researched! This edition examines the evolution of major educational institutions in the U.S. Using both a chronological and a topical frame-of-reference, Gutek's narrative describes the development of key institutions such as the common school, the high school, and the college and university. Spanning the colonial period to the present, this analysis provides an historical perspective on the evolution of American educational leaders, trends, and movements in their general political, social, intellectual, and economic contexts.
