Abstract:

"The American-Style University at Large: Transplants, Outposts, and the Globalization of Higher Education is an edited collection by Kathryn L. Kleypas and James McDougall that analyzes the recent expansion of American universities overseas as well as the emergence of American-style universities in Europe, Asia, and Africa. The contributors examine the various ways that American models of higher learning have become instituted around the world and explore ways that these new configurations help to define the university as a force that organizes, develops, and controls methods of education, knowledge, power, and culture"--Provided by publisher.
