In this volume, the contributors consider globalization as combining a market ideology with a corresponding material set of practices drawn from the world of business. Issues of managerialism, privatization and accountability - central values in business - have become central for universities and their administrators as well. The selections in the book help to illustrate the editors' contentions that globalization presents clear disadvantages as well as benefits, and that its effect on higher education is neither likely to be uniform nor the outcomes inevitable.
