Summary

''Mission and Money is the most comprehensive treatment of the economics of the higher education industry that I have seen in recent years. Written in an easily accessible style, it stresses that competition goes on within and between all sectors of the industry and employs the unifying theme that academic institutions are involved in both mission-oriented and money-raising activities to explain a wide variety of institutional behaviors and then concludes with the implications of its analysis for public policy. It is a 'must read' for all of us engaged in the study and administration of higher education institutions, as well as those engaged in the development of higher education policy.'' - Ronald G. Ehrenberg, Director, Higher Education Research Institute, Cornell University
