Lyall and Sell have opened a candid public policy discussion about the future of public universities. This is the only book-length treatment of public higher education finance at the beginning of the 21st century that looks comprehensively at state experiments and dilemmas, and attempts to envision possible future paths. Lyall and Sell describe market forces that are eroding the traditional partnership between states and public universities. By outlining how the search for new revenue sources is refocusing the basic goals of public universities, the authors clarify what has gone wrong_and what can be done to save these valuable American institutions.

Recensioner i media

This volume suggests that leaders become proactive in redefining the central mission of their respective universities. Each chapter can be read separately, as basic information is repeated throughout so the main points are never lost. The authors offer suggestions, yet the complexity of the issues is maintained throughout the discussion. This is an important read for anyone studying higher education policy. Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduates and above. CHOICE The strength of Lyall and Sell's book is the rich and quite up-to-date documentation of the financial austerity that has befallen most public universities...[t]heir book is the first (and so far, of course, the best) to document the severity of the fiscal dilemma of our great public universities and to suggest what a realistic future might unfortunately hold. In this they have made a significant contribution that should be read by university leaders, scholars, and (one can only hope) some politicians and their aides, in whose hands lie the real turn around, which is an end to the political assault on public sectors generally and to the myth of the overtaxed American.
