Abstract:

This volume is a companion to In Pursuit of Prestige Strategy and Competition in US. Higher Education, published by Transaction Press, 2001. This companion volume contains additional detail from a two-year study of higher education in the United States. The material here is organized into five appendices. The first four appendices offer expanded analyses of the four key revenue markets treated in the main text student enrollments, research funding, public fiscal support, and private giving. The final appendix presents an analysis of the changes in degree production over the past two decades. The material throughout this volume assumes familiarity with the conceptual framework presented in the book and readers are cautioned not to read this work independently. All references here are to the bibliography of the book.
