David (education, emerita, Univ. Coll. London) and Amey (educational administration, Michigan State Univ.) take a global approach, presenting today’s universities as competitive, entrepreneurial, expanding, and evolving. Entries address fundamentals but also burning issues, such as uncertainties of employment, the inclusion of disadvantaged groups, and intersectionality. Interactions between the academy and the world, including expected socioeconomic impacts, permeate the volumes.
