'John Harpur raises very important issues in relation to Irish public policy. He deserves credit for being a rare insider in Ireland to address inconvenient truths to little emperors. His book is well researched and international in its scope.'
- Michael Hennigan, Found and Editor of Finfacts, Finfacts
'..this is a wide-ranging and interesting text that approaches the well-trodden territory of 'what are universities for?' and 'have they been hijacked for spurious economic benefit?' in a more scholarly way than is often the case.'
- British Journal of Education Studies
'Too often research into higher education policy issues oscillates from description to prescription with very little analysis in between. Harpur's book most definitely does not fall into this category it is scholarly work with strong analytical themes.' - Perspectives: Policy and Practice in Higher Education
'Harpur provides a fresh set of perspectives...constantly challenging orthodoxies, asking questions and drawing together and recombining elements in order to make something new.' - Higher Education Quarterly
