Much has been written about higher education but very little about
the organisations of the state which increasingly determine its
destiny. Employing the theory of educational change developed in
the authors' previous work, this book analyses the contribution
each part of the state structure has made to the present condition
of higher education. Beginning with the political parties and
parliamentary committees, it shows how there has been a steady
decline in support for the traditional values of autonomous
university education and a growing belief in the accountability of
higher education to the needs of the economy. It then proceeds to
show how this ideological change was fostered by the DES and used
to justify the development of bureaucratic mechanisms of management
