From the cover: This book presents an account of the management of changes in universities new and old in Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom. Recent developments in the system of higher education are described, with particular reference to the change from a binary to a unified system in Australia and the United Kingdom. Changes in states and economies during the 1980s and 1990s are examined in terms of their effects on universities and their management. The interviews one hundred across twenty universities with academic managers and staff representatives across Australia, Canada and the United Kingdom provide the basis for an analysis of how change is being managed. Henry Miller points out that managerialism and the language and methods of the market are permeating the structure and culture of universities and that this raises questions about what are and should be the purposes of universities and how they should be governed.
