Summary "An authoritative overview that questions why some systems of governance have persisted while others have changed, International Perspectives on the Governance of Higher Education is essential reading for policy-makers, institutional leaders, managers, advisors, and scholars in the field of higher education. The recent evolution of higher education governance is analyzed by international contributors. The text builds towards a better understanding of developments in governance and their impact upon policy-making, and explores how governments shape higher education policy-making and how actors and institutions are affected by politics." "International Perspectives on the Governance of Higher Education builds on the conceptual and theoretical insights from different disciplines, particularly political science, public administration, and public policy. Exploring traditional governance, variations on those traditional themes, and the recent growth of a new institutional playing field --
wherein governance and coordination take part in a complex interaction, the book brings us to a better understanding of steering policy processes and their outcome in higher education." --Book Jacket
