Globalization of Higher Education
Society for Research into Higher Education
This book describes and analyzes the links between the growth of mass higher education systems and the radical processes of globalization which include not only round-the-clock, round-the-globe markets and new information technologies but revolutionary conceptions of time and space. Higher education is implicated as creator, interpreter and sufferer of these trends. "The Globalization of Higher Education" attempts to make sense of the connections between the expansion (and diversification) of higher education - including the increasing emphasis on international collaboration and the recruitment of international students - and the development of global politics, markets and culture. It offers a variety of perspectives, including those of national policies (from the UK, Europe and South Africa), of the European Union, of the Commonwealth, and of UNESCO. This is the first, significant attempt to put the transformation of higher education within the context of more general globalization.

"This book makes a considerable contribution to an understanding of gender within thelabour market." - Institute of Health Education "...a welcome addition to a growing bodyof literature on the gendering and sexualising of work, labour markets and organizations and is likely to be valuable to those wishing to follow key developments in feminist theorisations of the labour market." - Sociology "...an especially provocative reminder that gendering of jobs is potentially an active, replicable process which could happen at management levels or be processes that managers collude in as they create other jobs." - Management Learning "...represents a significant contribution to theliterature on gender and the labour market." - Canadian Review of Sociology & Anthropology
