Summary: This new edition of American Higher Education in the Twenty-First Century offers a critical assessment of much of the current conventional wisdom on the state of higher education in America. While the contributors agree with many critics who argue for ongoing reassessment of public institutions, they strive to provide a more balanced perspective. The contributors take issue with the "crisis" culture that has emerged among critics of current higher education ...show more practices, pointing out that the same atmosphere has been present for decades, if not centuries.

A varied group of contributors examine higher education practices around the world, explore the influences of external forces such as federal and state governments on higher education, provide an overview of the constituencies currently at work within higher education, and offers a more detailed analysis of several key issues, including finance, technology, the curriculum, race, and the commercialization of higher education. ...show less
