MEDIA REVIEWS

"Higher Education, Policy, and the Global Competition Phenomenon makes a critical contribution toward understanding how globalization continues to press higher education policy. It is an essential read for anyone seeking to understand the complexities of the modern university." - Robert A. Rhoads, Professor of Higher Education and Organizational Change, UCLA

"It is remarkable that this compilation includes so many case studies from a wide range of countries and socio-economic circumstances. The range and breadth of case studies in conjunction with the broad sweeping commentary effectively contextualize and reveal the wide-reaching impacts of global competition in higher education." - Africa Education Review

"The thirty-three authors with a fascinating diversity of experience who contribute to this seventeen-chapter edited volume invite readers into conversation about competition as the driving force in education . . . Fresh possibilities emerge for cooperative and creative learning that exceeds a one-size-fits-all mold of measurable education." - Teaching Theology and Religion
