‘Globalization represents one of the most compelling themes in modern higher education studies. This volume brings together a collection of the most thoughtful contributions over the last 15 years. Simon Marginson, himself the leading scholar in the field, provides a masterly introduction which will stand as a defining analysis of the importance of understanding its impact on higher education policies at all levels, local, national and international.’
– Michael Shattock, University of London, UK

‘The editors have brought together a large set of previously published papers which, taken as a whole, provide “global perspectives” on the subject of the globalization of higher education. It is the wide range of perspectives and the variety of topics addressed by authors drawn from all parts of the globe, which makes this such an important contribution to the literature on higher education. The manifestations of globalization are many and varied and there are few, if any, rival publications which deal with their implications for the future of higher education so comprehensively.’
– John Brennan, Open University, UK
