The Meanings of Mass Higher Education Summary

The Meanings of Mass Higher Education by Peter Scott

This book is the first systematic attempt to analyse the growth of mass higher education in a specifically British context, while seeking to develop more theoretical perspectives on this transformation of elite university systems into open post-secondary education systems. It is divided into three main sections. The first examines the evolution of British higher education and the development of universities and other institutions. The second explores the political, social and economic context within which mass systems are developing. What are the links between post-industrial society, a post-Fordist economy and the mass university? The third section discusses the links between massification and wider currents in intellectual and scientific culture.

The Meanings of Mass Higher Education Reviews

"...required reading for anyone wanting a grip on the new,mass, further and higher continuing education in Britain...meanings of HE are expressed in such style and with so much detail as to demand debate by as wide a readership as this essential text deserves." - Education Today & Tomorrow "Nobody writing today about higher education writes better than Peter Scott; none has abetter command of the grand narratives which define the sector or a more subtle appreciation of the balance to be achieved between continuity and change...Peter Scott has produced a masterful essay on the contemporary condition of higher education." - Studies in Higher Education
