Higher Education in Western Europe and North America: A Selected and Annotated Bibliography.
Fomerand, Jacques; And Others
Drawing on the social science disciplines, this bibliography presents a selected, annotated list of books, articles, dissertations, government reports, and international agency publications dealing with postsecondary education systems in Western Europe and North America. Its objectives are to provide a comparative guide to important developments in contemporary higher education and to evaluate relevant research. Chapters include: the mission and function of the university; the university and the modernization of society; the government of higher education; and the economics of higher education. Each chapter is introduced by a short thematic essay providing a descriptive and analytical overview of its topic, with the annotations of individual items serving as illustrative footnotes. Within each chapter, entries have been arranged alphabetically, with consecutive numbering throughout the volume to facilitate detailed indexing by countries, subtopics, and authors. Appendices include reference materials and selected periodicals. Also provided are author, subject, and country indexes. (Author/LC)
