Editorial Reviews

Review

“It is one of Roger Geiger’s achievements, by virtue of argument and evidence presented with engaging conciseness and strength of expression, that the position of American research universities…becomes secure.”

—James M. Banner Jr., New York Times Book Review  



“Roger Geiger…is to be greatly thanked for having put together the first reliable account of ‘The Growth of American Research Universities, 1900-1940.’ Now at length we have available between one pair of covers a comprehensive, organized text on how the research university got its start in American society.”

—Arnold Thackray, Science  



“[T]his book is the most understandable and best account of how and, as important, why our great modern research universities became what they are.”

—Joseph C. Kiger, The American Historical Review  



“To Advance Knowledge is a valuable book. Mr. Geiger provides the best statement in print of the nation’s research system in the early twentieth century…. It is interesting and enlightening and will promote better understanding of American higher education and its relation to research and the nation’s welfare.”

—Winton U. Solberg, Academe
