Specially commissioned papers by some of the most respected academics currently working in the field of higher education, drawing the situation as it is now and looking forward to the developments of the coming years.

Re-thinking science : knowledge and the public in an age of uncertainty by Helga Nowotny( Book )

The meanings of mass higher education by Peter Scott( Book )
7 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 198 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book is the first systematic attempt to analyse the growth of mass higher education in a specifically British context, while seeking to develop more theoretical perspectives on this transformation of elite university systems into open post-secondary education systems. It is divided into three main sections. The first examines the evolution of British higher education and the development of universities and other institutions. The second explores the political, social and economic context within which mass systems are developing. What are the links between post-industrial society, a post-Fordist economy and the mass university? The third section discusses the links between massification and wider currents in intellectual and scientific culture
