A challenging analysis of the changing role of higher education over the last three decades in Britain, taking into account the fundamental force underlying the move from an elite to a mass educational system. Themes include the changing relationship between the state and higher education; the Polytechnic legacy; new universities; university funding; marketising mass higher education; modularisation and semesterisation; the threat to academic standards; and the continuing potential of independent study.
