Description - Higher Education and National Development by David Bridges
International contributors to this wide-ranging text discuss the phenomenon of globalisation and its different aspects in relation to higher education, but also in relation to moves by nation states to devolve government to regional and subregional bodies and the implications therein. The European country of Lithuania is a particular focus for discussion in this book, as an example of a society facing transitions of both general and specific kinds. It is a country particularly suitable for the study of transitions in higher education, in light of its national policies and developments and is seen by the contributors as an example and point of reference for the consideration of issues which have much wider, global significance.
