Cohen, Director, ERIC Clearinghouse for Community Colleges"...A break-through in community college scholarship, moving beyond the boundaries of college, state and nation, and into issues of organization of knowledge at two year schools in a global economy." - Sheila Slaughter and Larry Leslie, authors of Academic Capitalism: Politics, Policies, and the Entrepreneurial University"An enlightening read that will surely stimulate further discussion. A must read." - Library Journal "Levin's design and approach are sound and sufficiently documented to lend support to the findings in this book." - Educational Researcher
