Binder AJ, Wood K. Becoming right : how campuses shape young conservatives. Princeton, N.J.: Princeton University Press; 2013. Abstract

"Becoming Right demonstrates the power that campus culture has in developing students' conservative political styles and shows that young conservatives are made, not born."

Altbach PG, Gumport PJ, Berdahl RO. American higher education in the twenty-first century: Social, political, and economic challenges. Vol 3rd. Baltimore, MD: Johns Hopkins University Press; 2011.

"We are concerned in this book not only with how specific governmental actions affect the administration of postsecondary education, but also with how broader societal forces impact the entire academic community. Unraveling the web of relationships between higher education an society is paramount to understanding the academic enterprise and all that goes on within it. The perennial dynamism evident at all levels of American higher education provides fodder for analysts of all inclinations."

Giroux SS. Between race and reason: Violence, intellectual responsibility, and the university to come. Stanford, Calif.: Stanford University Press; 2010. Abstract

"Inquiring into the future of the university, Susan Giroux finds a paradox at the heart of higher education in the post-civil rights era. Although we think of "post-civil rights" as representing a colorblind or race transcendent triumphalism in national political discourse, Giroux argues that our present is shaped by persistent "raceless" racism at home and permanent civilizational war abroad. She sees the university as a primary battleground in this ongoing struggle."
