Clotfelter, Charles T. 2010. . (Ed)American Universities in a Global Market. University of Chicago Press.

In recent years, America’s position of leadership in the world has been challenged in many ways. One significant shift is that the country’s position as the preeminent global leader in higher education, particularly in the fields of science and technology, has come into question. American Universities in a Global Market addresses the variety of issues crucial to understanding this change. The volume examines the various factors that contributed to America’s success in higher education, including openness to people and ideas, generous governmental support, and a tradition of decentralized friendly competition. It also explores the advantages of holding a dominant position in this marketplace and examines the current state of American higher education in a comparative context, placing particular emphasis on how market forces affect universities. The book also discusses the differences in quality among students and institutions around the world and sheds light on the singular aspects of American higher education.
