'As it is thought of primarily as a local institution, one might not think that the community college would be affected significantly by globalization. However, in a path breaking study in two countries, Professor Levin shows that the community college has been affected in profound and diverse ways by the forces of globalization. In addition to dissecting the impacts of globalization, this book also provides such valuable insights into the organizational dynamics of community colleges that it is a must read for anyone interested in the management of community colleges.' - Michael L. Skolnik

'As John Levin demonstrates, globalization and academic capitalism are as pervasive in community colleges as in universities, and the two are re-shaping the mission of the community college as well as the opportunities available to students. Community colleges are entrepreneurial actors on a global stage, trading in international students, marketers of global educational products, and markets for multinational corporations. This book is a break-through in community college scholarship, moving beyond the boundaries of college, state and nation, and into issues of organization of knowledge at two year schools in a global economy.' - Sheila Slaughter and Larry Leslie, authors of Academic Capitalism: Politics, Policies and the Entrepreneurial University
'Levin's design and approach are sound and sufficiently documented to lend support to the findings in this book.' - Educational Researcher
'...among those who care about the role and future of community colleges, Levin's work belongs on your shelf.' - Chad M. Hanson, The Journal of Higher Education
'...an important work...' - Susan Salvador, Journal of College Student Development
