Editorial Reviews

"This bibliography aims to be a comprehensive listing of sources relating to the histories of specific institutions of postsecondary education throughout the world. This is a formidable goal, and Sparks has searched through books, dissertations, theses, and ERIC-RIE to identify such histories. Entries are arranged by country, and the US has been further divided by state. The author has attempted to verify each source using standard bibliographic tools such as OCLC, NUC, and DAI: some these were verified with their sponsoring universities. Names of institutions are in English, whereas references are in the language in which they were written. . . . [T]his bibliography would represent an important and useful addition to any collection dealing with higher or international education."-Choice
