Über diesen Titel
Covering all types of schools, from large state universities to small private colleges, the author of Where the Buffalo Roam provides an intense look at how America's higher educational institutions are reinventing themselves. 20,000 first printing.Review:
Anne Matthews is a memorable campus tour guide. In Bright College Years she leads her reader into the privileged recesses of dorm rooms, classrooms, and faculty offices, later flopping down to hang out in the quad. As she wanders through Ivy League hallways and across middle American university campuses, Matthews creates a comprehensive portrait of the complex world of academia as it reinvents itself to suit society's interests on the verge of the millenium. Matthews explores issues related to the literary canon and political correctness and faculty-student relations. Matthews is a university insider (she was raised on the campus of the University of Wisconsin and now teaches at New York University), and this gives her the ability to convey her ideas with depth and clarity. Instead of espousing a particular viewpoint, Matthews chooses to provoke the reader by holding a mirror to the face of the nation's colleges and universities and pursuing the fundamental question that's reflected: what is going on in higher education today and what is it all for?
