Since it published its first college guide in 1998, tens of thousands of parents and their college-aged children have come to depend on ISI for informed and independent judgments of the prevailing intellectual, political, and social environments at America’s top colleges and universities. With this brand-new guide, All-American Colleges: Top Schools for Believers, Conservatives, and Old-Fashioned Liberals, ISI provides a crucial supplement to its critically acclaimed Choosing the Right College. While Choosing the Right College covers America’s elite private and public institutions, many of them hotbeds of politicized instruction and saddled with anemic curricula, in All-American Colleges ISI’s editorial team provides personal, in-depth profiles of forty highly recommended schools and programs. At each of these diverse institutions, students who identify themselves as religious believers, conservatives, or old-fashioned liberals will find programs that connect in a special way with the core values of the American founding and the vibrant intellectual traditions of the West—schools and programs that are, in fact, often transformative. Based on fresh, extensive interviews with students, faculty, and administrators, the profiles in All-American Colleges extend ISI’s coverage of contemporary academia to accentuate the positive—while including necessary caveats about the unfortunate aspects of each school. The result is a unique new guide that parents—and buyers of Choosing the Right College—will not want to miss.

First published in 1962, Frederick Rudolph's groundbreaking study, The American College and University, remains one of the most useful and significant works on the history of higher education in America. Bridging the chasm between educational and social history, this book was one of the first to examine developments in higher education in the context of the social, economic, and political forces that were shaping the nation at large. Surveying higher education from the colonial era through the mid-twentieth century, Rudolph explores a multitude of issues from the financing of institutions and the development of curriculum to the education of women and blacks, the rise of college athletics, and the complexities of student life. In his foreword to this new edition, John Thelin assesses the impact that Rudolph's work has had on higher education studies. The new edition also includes a bibliographic essay by Thelin covering significant works in the field that have appeared since the publication of the first edition. At a time when our educational system as a whole is under intense scrutiny, Rudolph's seminal work offers an important historical perspective on the development of higher education in the United States.

The built and landscaped spaces of colleges and universities radiate and absorb the values of the cultures in which they were created. As economic and political forces exert pressure on administrators and as our understanding of higher education shifts, these spaces can transform dramatically. Focusing on the utopian visions and the dystopian realities of American campus life, this collection of new essays examines campus spaces from the perspective of those who live and work there. Topics include disability, sustainability, first-year writing, underrepresented groups on campus, online education, adjunct labor, and the way profit-driven agendas have shaped colleges and universities.
