This book makes both empirical and conceptual contributions to the debate on privatization of higher education in China. Empirically, it aims to fill a gap in our knowledge of privatization of higher education in North China. To this end, Beijing was chosen as a case for analysis, and nine local higher educational institutions were visited. The case study strategy is also complemented by an extensive review of national policies to reveal problems beyond the specific case of Beijing and of national concern. The effects of the cultural and socioeconomic background and the unique state-party controlling system on higher education management are stressed. Conceptually, most existing studies on privatization of higher education in China adopt a policy analysis approach, while research on privatization of other public sectors or in other countries is frequently guided by economic theories. This book thus seeks to combine both social policy and econometric approaches to provide a systematic and detailed investigation of the privatization process in the context of higher education. It also improves examines the applicability of western theories in the Chinese context.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"The book not only provides an empirical discussion of the implementation of the privatization of HE in the Chinese context, but also imposes a conceptual clarification concerning the retreat of the state, the relationship between the state, the market and university, and educational inequality. ... this book should be valuable for anyone working in the area of China studies, not only those concerned with HE or privatization." (William Yat Wai Lo, Higher Education, Vol. 74, 2017)
