Harvard University Press has partnered with De Gruyter to make available for sale worldwide virtually all in-copyright HUP books that had become unavailable since their original publication. The 2,800 titles in the “e-ditions” program can be purchased individually as PDF eBooks or as hardcover reprint (“print-on-demand”) editions via the “Available from De Gruyter” link above. They are also available to institutions in ten separate subject-area packages that reflect the entire spectrum of the Press’s catalog. More about the E-ditions Program »
This report was completed by a special committee of the Harvard Faculty of Education appointed to consider how the graduate study of education should be viewed in the context of a strong independent university. Its focus is on Harvard but its concerns will be relevant elsewhere. Asserting that “education is as broad as all of culture,” the committee interprets the school of education “as the university proper, focused upon the field of education.” Specifically the report treats problems of priorities, program integration, improvement of teaching, and organization of research, and offers wide-ranging recommendations. Included are a history of the Graduate School of Education, a summary of the Faculty’s initial actions, and new doctoral program directions.
