Imagining Ivy: Pitfalls in the Privatization of Higher Education in Australia.
Marginson, Simon
Comparative Education Review, v41 n4 p460-80 Nov 1997
Describes attempts to establish at least 20 private universities in Australia between the mid-1980s and mid-1990s, of which only 4 remain viable. Discusses five categories of national higher-education environments. Suggests that most proposed private universities were undermined by their overtly commercial character and the strength and versatility of public universities in meeting total and elite demands. (SV)
