  • Complexityby Tom P. Abeles

    Emerald Group Publishing Limited 2011; US$ 199.00

    We are at a seminal transition point for many institutions. The dinosaurs took millennia to disappear or transform. We should not expect the period of transformation for universities to take that long. And, as with some dinosaurs, we should expect that some will survive relatively unchanged. But for most, in a world made global by the electronic network,... more...

  • Education and the Stateby Carla Aubry; Michael Geiss; Veronika Magyar-Haas; Jürgen Oelkers

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 140.00

    In most countries in the world, school education is the business of the state. Even if forms and functions differ, the imparting of elementary knowledge is universally regarded as a public function. Yet this is neither self-evident nor self-explanatory. The degree of involvement of state agencies in the supervision, financing and organization of the... more...
