The book analyses the growth and expansion of higher education in India and how this has impacted upon human development and gender equality -- especially for women -- and argues that we need to review the entire structure of education and focus on the realization of people's potentials through their literacy, educational achievements, skill sets and performance in the labour markets as well as larger contributions to human development and societal progress. The analysis reveals key areas of reform and action that should be taken by policy-makers and educational institutions to promote further development and equality."@en ;
