Product Description


'This important collection provides a compelling historically and theoretically informed analysis of contemporary changes in universities and higher education sectors in OECD countries. The collection offers valuable new insights into the regional embeddedness of universities and how these relationships might evolve in the new era of borderless growth.' Mark Considine, University of Melbourne, Australia 'Universities are under pressure. This provocative and stimulating book analyses the key dynamics of those "bright satanic mills" in charge of knowledge production. The book is highly original and contains striking material to help us think about contemporary changes in the role and scale of universities.' Patrick Le Gales, Sciences Po Paris/CNRS/CEVIPOF, France 'Harding, Scott, Laske and Burtscher have assembled a critical resource and insightful discussion into the organizational and human complexity impacting the successful formation and maintenance of relevant and effective university/economic development partnerships.' Information Technology and People 'Bright Satanic Mills, Universities, Regional Development and the Knowledge is a fresh contribution to the debate on universities and regional development. It appears that university regional engagement is easier to talk about than to do. Bright Satanic Mills goes a long way to explaining why that is, and suggesting what needs to change if universities are to forge a path beyond corporatism into the wilds of the knowledge economy.' Education, Citizenship and Social Justice 'The book itself is well-presented and fully references edited text produced by some eighteen contributors...It provides a very good introduction to the debates as to the degree to which higher education institutions are "spatially rooted engines of economic, social and environmental change"' Environment and Planning B: Planning and Design
