Praise / Awards

  • ". . . a valuable addition to this still relatively untilled field."
  • ". . . a thought-provoking and useful book."
  • "Scholars interested in the economics of higher education will find this volume well worth reading. . . . [T]his is a stimulating volume that opens up many potential avenues of inquiry."
    --Southern Economic Journal
  • ". . . the volume is valuable because it provides a clear explanation of what the important policy questions in the economics of higher education are, and what most of the evidence bearing on these issues is. Even more important than the substantive evidence, however, is the value of the volume as an exemplar for how policy analysis should be done. The book demonstrates in every chapter the analytical power that can be achieved by combining insights from economic theory with a detailed understanding of the institutional structure of an industry."
    --Journal of Economic Literature
