Review:

"In this welcomed book, Garth Allen uses his interest in economics and experience to encourage the reader to think again about the nature of the university...the central purpose and form of the university." (Dr. Jorge Ferrao, Rector University of Lurio Nampula, Mozambique) "An energetic and detailed survey of the ways the modern university takes its place in society...as both a knowledge-machine and a business model...I wish I had a text like this when I began my teaching career." (Prof. Frederic Will, University of Phoenix)"
