Summary

In this critical new work, Slaughter investigates how university involvement in high technology influences higher education policy. By conducting a case study of the Business-Higher Education Forum, a liaison organization consisting of Fortune 500 Chief Executive Officers and presidents of well-known research universities, the author explores the policy agenda of the Forum, the historical and structural antecedents of that agenda, and its organizational implications for various post-secondary sectors and their faculty.

"I expect this indisputably mature work of scholarship to be viewed as a substantial and, by many, a seminal contribution to the higher education literature. The book is fascinating to read not only because it is well-written and tightly argued, but especially because of the way that the author invites the reader to reflect on the data and its theoretical implications. Indeed, the book is such a good read that I would strongly recommend it to anyone concerned about higher education." -- Clifton F. Conrad, University of Wisconsin, Madison

"Many consider the topic to be the keystone issue facing higher education and the larger society. The book demonstrates the valve of a neo-Marxist approach for the study of higher education in a way that will be accepted by individuals who do not consider themselves neo-Marxists." -- Robert J. Silverman, The Ohio State University

Sheila Slaughter is Associate Professor in the Center for the Study of Higher Education at the University of Arizona.
