"An excellent book full of fascinating essays. The New American College Town will be of great interest to college and university presidents and other senior administrators, who will undoubtedly read it to help them address relationships with their towns or cities. It will also greatly interest scholars of higher education and of urban history."

"This compendium of essays by planners, architects, college leaders, and elected officials offers a mind-expanding variety of perspectives on the prospects for communities that are fortunate to be home to a college or university. The multiple approaches in these essays show how unimaginative and even sentimental we have often been when considering how to shape the futures of these special places. Anyone who lives in a college town—or who cares about one as a college alumnus(a)—would benefit from reading this volume."

"James Martin and James E. Samels have created an invaluable guide to a key relationship for every college and university—the one it has with its neighbors. The New American College Town explores how institutions of higher education are stronger when they participate in the communities that surround them. It is a must-read for anyone leading a college or university."
