David Robinson Publishes Book

Business faculty David Robinson, with co-editor Dr. William Jeynes of California State University, published the International Handbook of Protestant Education (Springer Publishing, 2012).

"So far, some major universities and colleges in this country -- Stanford, MIT, the New York university system, the California university system, and Vassar -- plus institutions in eight countries elsewhere have purchased our book," Robinson reported.

Robinson is also working on a book for Information Age Publishing, on the history of the industrialization of American higher education, to be published later this year.

From the Back Cover

Since their earliest days, institutions providing a Protestant education have always been respected and sought-after for their rigor and relative freedom from dogma—and despite today's secularism and plurality, they remain so. This international handbook is the ultimate companion to protestant schooling worldwide. Its 39 chapters form the most comprehensive and wide-ranging treatment of the subject yet available, addressing Protestant education on all six inhabited continents and featuring the perspectives of leading authorities and public figures. Both exhaustive and authoritative, The International Handbook of Protestant Education will be an invaluable asset to educators, ministers, parents, policy makers and political leaders of any denomination—or none.
