"Urban fills a critically important void in our scholarship on the history and development of federal education policy in this book. He has drawn upond his deep understanding of the history of federal legislation and national education policy development to chart the dramatic expansion of the federal role in education, and what it has meant, and what it still means for the issues and interests of today."
