Decades of Chaos and Revolution presents an insightful picture of the tension and tumult that today's presidents of colleges and universities face. These problems stem from the 1960s and 1970s, a time when these issues first arose and their outcomes ultimately shaped the administrations of future presidencies. These ideological battles continue, however, and 21st century presidents are grappling these same issues.

Stephen J. Nelson is associate professor of educational leadership at Bridgewater State University and senior scholar in the Leadership Alliance at Brown University. He has written three previous books about the college presidency: Leaders in the Crossroads: Success and Failure in the College Presidency, Leaders in the Labyrinth: College Presidents and the Battleground of Creeds and Convictions, Leaders in the Crucible: The Moral Voice of College Presidents, as well as numerous scholarly articles. He holds a Ph.D. in Higher Education Administration from the University of Connecticut, a Master of Divinity degree from Andover Newton Theological School, a Master of Arts in Religious Studies from the Hartford Seminary, and an A.B. in history from Gettysburg College.
