"...it is really hard to find fault with what is presented...I recommend this book wholeheartedly. It will be thought- provokingto many, including tutors and students of educationalpolicy...I wouldencourage anyone working in HE to read it since it does much to explain the situation in which we find ourselves." - Assessment & Evaluation in Higher Education "The book isdesigned to provoke debate and it assuredly will, but the debate willbe one that throws more light than heat on the problems in question, because the book is written with sensitivity to the susceptibilities of traditional academics as well as of captains of industry. The authors are all expert in their fields and they write well." - The New Academic
