Reviewing evidence from more than 1,000 colleges, elite and not, the author argues that baccalaureate education's power to reduce inequality has actually declined, because the colleges themselves have become more unequal.

It is an historical analysis of a large and variegated industry, described in terms - such as "firm," "consumer," and "market power" - rarely applied to it, that explain this increasing inequality.--"@en ;
