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."--BOOK JACKET."
