520    "Spans the period from World War II to the present during 
       which Rutgers grew from two small, liberal arts colleges, 
       an agricultural school, and an engineering school into a 
       major public research university. We chronicle the 
       remarkable story of Rutgers's rise as a research 
       university, but also the way the school has been 
       experienced by generations or students and residents of 
       the state. The Cold War, the student protests of the 1960s
       and the 1970s, the rise of identity politics on campus, 
       big-time athletics, and the various ways students have 
       shaped and been affected by popular culture all play a 
       part in this story. Three chapters cover chronologically 
       the major changes that occurred at the university between 
       1945 and the present, bringing up to date the work done in
       Richard P. McCormick's, Rutgers, A Bicentennial History 
       (1966). The remaining chapters provide snapshots of some 
       of the key themes in the contemporary history of the 
       school -- campus life and campus activism, the school's 
       growing strength as a research institution, the impact of 
       Title IX on opportunities for women student athletes, the 
       school's public presence as reflected in such long-
       standing institutions as the University Press, the Glee 
       Club, and undergraduate journalism. Rutgers current 
       residence halls, which house more students than at any 
       other college in the nation, are the subject of a 
       imaginatively illustrated, architectural analysis While 
       much of the focus of our study is on the New Brunswick/
       Piscataway campus, attention has been paid throughout to 
       Camden and Newark as well"--|cProvided by publisher.
