Book Description

Originally published in 1968 The New University is a collection of essays dealing with problems and opportunities of university development in our time. The main focus is upon the universities of the United Kingdom, but there are also accounts of American and Commonwealth Discussion and experiment. The book addresses a global scene and draws striking inferences from American practice. It also provides a survey of the plans for English expansion as they struck an informed observer. The book also considers the problem of stratification of existing universities and the prospects for any further development beyond present plans.
