Univ of New York Press
Provides the most intimate view of federal higher education policymaking since Congress and the Colleges. Reveals that, despite the lack of power as measured by conventional standards, higher education associations have succeeded in convincing Congress to dramatically expand the scope of federal student aid programs under the 1992 Higher Education Act.

Analyzes the reauthorization and expansion in 1992 of the Higher Education Act and the Clinton student aid agenda, seeking to resolve the contradiction between conventional measures of power and actual policy outcomes in the federal higher education policy arena. Discusses the concept of power in policy analysis, describes the historical and social context of policy making, and looks at the role of power in higher education policy making, and at the impacts of the Clinton administration and the "Republican revolution."
