Summary:
"This is an edited collection, which identifies the major structural features of national higher education systems in different countries around the world and the academic markets that shape professors' academic careers. The contributors to the volume have collected data on an array of national systems and have developed approaches to categorizing systemic differences in ways that allow for multivariate analysis of large survey data sets. This book adds a comparative approach to the literature by addressing the complex relationships between national systems and academic career pathways as they adapt to globalization"-- Provided by publisher.
