Review: The History of Higher Education

User Review  - Oliver Bateman - Goodreads

An excellent collection of essays by historians of higher education. Most of the essays are short, accessible versions of much longer books or reprints of articles that ran in prominent journals, which means that this is a source I'll be revisiting for years to come. Read full review
