Bienkowski, W., Brada, J.C. & Stanley, G. (Eds.) The university in the age of globalization: rankings, resources and reforms. Palgrave Macmillan, Basingstoke, 2012. ISBN: 9780230364004. Pages: 272.
This recently released compilation of articles brings together an evaluation and comparison of the internationalisation of higher education systems, covering areas ranging from rankings and challenges related to funding and autonomy to recommendations for improving commercialisation of research. The geographical focus of the book mainly rests on the comparison between the United States and the experiences of higher education systems of more recent EU member states in Central and Eastern Europe. This unique angle of the book is highly appreciated as it presents a perspective not often addressed in mainstream internationalisation literature.Palgrave Macmillan
