“The change in the mood of American higher education from 1960 to 1969 was incredible and surprising — from optimism and confidence to exhaustion and uncertainty,” Dr. John Thelin tells Inside Higher Ed’s Scott Jaschik in a Q&A feature about his latest book, published by Johns Hopkins University Press.
