About the Author
Praise For The Great University Gamble: Money, Markets and the Future of Higher Education…
"Andrew McGettigan is in my opinion by far the most knowledgeable person in the country on the government's obscure and yet revolutionary program of change for universities. He provides us with a full and independent view of the short, medium and longer-term implications of the government's plans. This book is essential and deeply worrying reading." – Simon Szreter, Professor of History and Public Policy, University of Cambridge
"Andrew McGettigan is one of the most respected and incisive commentators on higher education. There are no other texts at present that address the political economy of higher education and none that put all the pieces of the jigsaw together to reveal the picture with such clarity." – John Holmwood, Professor of Sociology, Faculty of Social Sciences, University of Nottingham, co-founder of the Campaign for the Public University and editor of A Manifesto for the Public University (2011)
