The Making of Princeton University: From Woodrow Wilson to the Present
"How did a small men's college in a quiet town grow to become one of the world's great universities? James Axtell's insightful, comprehensive, and compelling account of the last century of Princeton explores this question through unique methods. "The Making of Princeton University" is different from the best of institutional histories. Axtell tells the story of Princeton in the round; not just the presidents and trustees, but faculty, students, staff, academics, social life, sports, artistic life, admissions, and alumni."--John Milton Cooper, University of Wisconsin
"I know of no recent piece of work like this in terms of its in-depth command of its material, its success in contextualizing content about one university, and its readability. A terrific accomplishment."--William Bowen, President of The Andrew W. Mellon Foundation and former president of Princeton University
"A wonderful read. Anyone who reads this book, from well-informed insiders, who like myself have experienced nearly half of the story, to interested outsiders, will give the author the highest marks for meticulous scholarship and vigorous writing."--Robert Tignor, Princeton University
""The Making of Princeton University" is the product of prodigious scholarship, graceful prose, and insight into many of the less appreciated corners of university life. Those who scorn traditional institutional history will heap praise on this book."--Roger Geiger, Pennsylvania State University
"Axtell forges a new genre. He is the first to have written an anthropologically informed history of a university as an intellectual center. This book is an exciting contribution to the history of higher education."--Bruce Leslie, SUNY College, Brockport, and Wolfson College, University of Cambridge
