In the State of UK Higher Education a team of experienced university managers explores the strengths and weaknesses of the various elements and sectors of the UK higher education system. Their chapters illustrate the rich diversity of responses within different institutions to similar drivers of change. The contributions are personal and punchy but also enjoy a shared perspective as all but one of the authors have spent part of their careers at the University of Warwick. The exception, Peter Scott, draws together a number of important threads in an overarching and powerful final chapter. Overall, this book examines the changing concept and nature of higher education; provides a comprehensive analysis of UK higher education today; and points to how it might develop in the early years of the twenty-first century.
