The seventh volume of this annual publication consists primarily of eleven articles devoted to the period 1760-1848. The papers range from the study of particular faculties to the role of government in higher education and the concept of a liberal education. Together, the articles form a unique account of the development of the university in the age of the liberal revolution in countries as distinct as Russia, France, and the United States. As well as containing the usual wide selection of book reviews devoted to recent works on university history, this volume also contains two new sections, one devoted to research in progress, and the other to an on-going bi bliography of recent publications (articles and books) in the field of the history of higher education throughout the world. With these additions, Volume VII is much larger than its predecessors, confirming History of Universities as an indispensable tool for every student of the history of education.

 

This is the most recent volume of the yearbook, and forms a unique account of the development of higher education between 1760 and 1848. There are two new sections, one devoted to research in progress and the other to an on-going bibliography of recent publications in the history of higher education throughout the world.
