Comparative Higher Education.
Altbach, Philip G.
This report reviews past and present literature relating to comparative higher education. Much of the literature relates to single nations, since cross-national studies have not been performed on a wide scale. The author emphasizes the need for such studies to be made now that sufficient data is generally available. The literature related to a number of areas of concern to higher education is reviewed, including such areas as planning, student activism, faculty, and governance. Higher education reform, a key issue of the 70s, is considered at length. In the final section, the author examines potential directions for future research. The paper includes an extensive bibliography as well as a list of journals that regularly feature articles about comparative higher education. (Author)
