An exploration of the important history of Columbia University and its effect on the nation and the world. A remarkable book about a critical achievement in the history of human health. -- Leon Assael, dean, School of Dentistry, University of Minnesota This book should be required reading for dental school deans, administrators, faculty, and even students who have to decide where to apply and where to go to dental school. Allan J. Formicola has the comprehensive overview of this subject matter, detailed insights in the life of this institution, and a solid understanding of the complexity of academic life in dental schools like no one else. -- Marita Inglehart, University of Michigan School of Dentistry Formicola has done an outstanding job with this well-written, factual, and interesting history of the past hundred years at the Columbia University College of Dental Medicine. It is a significant contribution to the history of dental education and an appropriate historical tribute to the school. -- Howard Bailit, University of Connecticut School of Dental Medicine
