Prometheus Bound: The Changing Relationship Between Government and Higher Education in Western Europe

Guy R. Neave, Frans van Vught
Elsevier Science & Technology Books, 1991 - 264 Seiten
This volume sets out a systematic and comparative analysis of the changing relationship between government and higher education. While focusing on ten Western European countries, the United States and Australia, the book is primarily concerned with the ways in which the role of government has altered in higher education since the late 1970s. Also how higher education, under varying degrees of constraint has responded, and, if the tightening of governmental control is an international phenomenon, what forms has it taken? Each country discussed presents an analysis of the recent changes between government and higher education from a variety of perspectives and looks at the effect the changes in strategy have had upon the linkage between the university and the polity. Have these changes contributed to reinforcing centralized control, or, on the contrary, have they served to increase the autonomy of higher education by forcing it to diversify its support?
