New York was the last state in the Union to create in 1948 a state-supported system of higher education, and Stony Brook became its first comprehensive University Center formed de novo in 1957, joining with the other state universities in democratizing higher education. This book probes the political conditions and bureaucratic actions that contributed to Stony Brook’s struggle to emerge as a major research university, gaining international pre-eminence.
