Making Harvard modern : the rise of America's university by Morton Keller( Book )

22 editions published between 2001 and 2007 in English and held by 477 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Making Harvard Modern is a portrait of America's most prominent university from 1933 to the present: seven decades of dramatic change. Early-twentieth-century Harvard was the country's oldest and richest university, but not necessarily its outstanding one. By the century's end it was widely regarded as the nation's, and the world's, leading institution of higher education. With verve, humor, and insight, Morton and Phyllis Keller tell the story of that rise: a tale of compelling personalities, notable achievement, and no-less-notable academic pratfalls. Their book is based on rich and revealing archival materials, interviews, and personal experience."--Jacket
Getting at the core : curricular reform at Harvard by Phyllis Keller( Book )

14 editions published between 1982 and 2010 in English and Chinese and held by 439 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The genesis of Harvard's new Core Curriculum, which resulted in major changes in the university's general education program in the 1970s, is presented in a candid account. The narrative highlights the contest of conflicting beliefs about the ends and means of undergraduate education, and reveals the strategies employed to resolve conflicts and to reach a consensus. Among the questions underlying the debate about curricular change are: What does it mean to be broadly educated? What skills, knowlege, and habits of thought have general and lasting value? Given the diversity of students' abilities and preparation for college work, is it possible to set a standard of academic achievement for all students? Should the undergraduate curriculum give free play to the intellectual interests of faculty and students, or should educational choices be guided by common and specific goals? Written by an historian who participated in the events described, the book includes a description of the historical setting, the search for a mandate, and the politics of reform. Appended is a partial listing of core courses, including only those offered in 1981-82. (lb)
German-America and the First World War by Phyllis Keller( Book )

11 editions published between 1969 and 1981 in English and Undetermined and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This study of the experience of German-Americans during World War I is divided into three main parts. It moves from the most general considerations to the most particular : from a description of political circumstances and social conditions which shaped the time of crisis of a major American ethnic group, to a study of the ways in which the crisis was perceived within that group, and finally to an exploration of the responses of unusually sensitive individual German-Americans"--Preface
