Editorial Reviews

“Higher education is growing most rapidly in the Asia-Pacific region, and thus university people as well as policy makers are facing the difficult task of balancing quality and quantity. This book will help readers understand the current situation of higher education not only in the Asia-Pacific region but everywhere that they may work.” --Shinichi Yamamoto, Hiroshima University“This volume explores the policy debates and dilemmas in promoting the agenda of a knowledge society. Access, equity, and capacity are inextricably intertwined and policy paradoxes are many as is illustrated across Asia. Policy makers and scholars will benefit immensely from the experiences reported and ably framed by the editors.” --Hazman Shah Abdullah, Assistant Vice-Chancellor (Quality Assurance), Universiti Teknologi MARA, Malaysia
