Higher Education and Opinion Making in Twentieth-Century England


"This book explores the changing patterns of higher education in England in the twentieth century, the types of institutions and the emergence of a `system' of education. At the same time it traces the relationship between the writer-advocates of higher education and the changing world of higher education and its contexts. There is therefore an interrelated story of higher education, the writers, their messages, their backgrounds and ideologies, the audiences they intend to address, and the impacts of the state and other external forces. The book will appeal to higher education academics and administrators, politicians and other policy makers, and staff and students on higher degree and professional programmes."
