An analysis of the changing role of higher education over the last three decades in Britain, this volume takes into account the fundamental force underlying the move from an elite to a mass educational system. Themes covered in the text include: the changing relationship between the state and higher education; the polytechnic legacy; new universitis; university funding; marketizing mass higher education; and the threat to academic standards.
