MEDIA REVIEWS

"Tomas Irish presents a stimulating contribution to a newly blossoming field that takes university history beyond institutional narratives and national frameworks. ... Relating the different perspectives through a sound structure and a clear line of argument creates a rich and vibrant picture. It opens new vistas on university culture in war, intellectual mobilisation and the subtle ebbs and flows of political currents in the academic world. It also makes the book a truly rewarding read." (Charlotte A. Lerg, History of Education, December, 2016)

"In this wide-ranging account Tomas Irish makes a convincing case that World War I profoundly changed the university systems in Britain, France, and the United States, and, as a result, universities and their scholars have become essential to the war-making capacities of modern states in Europe and North America. ... this is a skillful telling of a complicated story that deserves a wide readership." (Gerald E. Shenk, Journal of American History, Vol. 103 (2), September, 2016)
