As we near the end of the century, there can be no doubt that the increasingly global political economy has affected the ways in which universities are governed; the daily lives of academics have been altered as well. In this new volume, editors Jan Currie and Janice Newson 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 accountabilityùall central values in businessùhave become primary for universities and their administrators as well. The selections in this book help illustrate the editorsÆ contentions that globalization presents clear disadvantages as well as benefits to all citizens. GlobalizationÆs effects on higher education are not likely to be uniform nor are the outcomes an inevitable process. The future of the university as a place where society can examine itself critically is at stake and this volume will be a strong contributor to the debate. Universities and Globalization will be of great interest to those interested in higher education, the role of the university, and global institutions and practices.
