Responds to the clash of elitist and mass-education models for higher education in an increasingly divided society, the erosion of academic autonomy, new technological challenges, and the tension between values of education and training. Envisions a system of higher education that take the initiative in defining radically different models for the future of universities; are accessible, accountable, and growing steadily with adequate resources; promote democratic values; offer high quality, life- long learning opportunities; and are based on a new contract with and vision for the society they serve. The seven essays are revised from contributions to a seminar series at the University of Durham, England. Distributed in the US by Taylor & Francis. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
