"The first edition of Researching Higher Education has been a very helpful resource for those trying to make sense of the field of higher education. Malcolm Tight has accomplished a tour de force by updating and expanding that edition. This volume includes up-to-date analyses of recent higher education publications and thoughtful reflections on methodology and theory in higher education research. Requisite reading for novices to the field, but also for the experienced researchers trying to keep abreast of the developments in the field."Professor Jeroen Huisman, Director International Centre for Higher Education Management, School of Management, University of Bath, UK

"The most comprehensive overview of research on higher education available, Researching Higher Education provides a multidisciplinary perspective of the field. This book will be valuable for students thinking about research as well as anyone wanting a perspective on research directions on higher education."

This authoritative book couples an overview of the principal current areas of research into higher education with a guide to the processes involved in undertaking such research.
