Judged by any standard, these years were tumultuous ones for higher education. Economic pressures from the state legislature, issues surrounding grants from such agencies as the National Institutes of Health and the National Science Foundation, the civil rights movement, student and faculty protests during the Vietnam era, massive changes in the physical and administrative shape of the campus, and the computerization of all parts of campus life had far-reaching consequences." "Spriestersbach's account of the Vietnam years and of the evolution of computers at Iowa will be particularly interesting to readers."--BOOK JACKET." ;
