Hana Ripkova's book, the first in a long time, is the first Czech synoptic work on the American university education system. The first part of the book covers the historical development from the colonial period to the present. The author analyses the diverse system of financing and legal status of American universities and colleges, methods of financing; emphasizes the importance of university libraries or describes the ways of assessing and grading. In the second part, the author compares the American system with the Czech one: collates problems of university education in American and Czech environments, evaluates their results or uses the American criteria to classify Czech universities.
