    schema:reviewBody ""This book traces the changing shape and nature of higher education in England in the twentieth century, interwoven with a study of some of the key writer-advocates of expansion and priorities, old and new, for the institutions. It is therefore the story of the English system and efforts to influence opinion on topics such as the role of the professor, Christian perspectives and the relationship of technology and the humanities. It analyses points at which the state itself became not only paymaster but also direction-setter and monitor - and the implications for the system and those who work in it. It moves from the creation of institutions in the early decades, the roles of writers and journals, through the social and international traumas of the 1930s and 1940s and books and debates about the role of universities in a democratic society. It goes on to the expansionism and controversies of the second half of the century, and then to the 'painful transformation' of the last decades. It discusses why the 'opinion makers' had disappeared or become silent by the beginning of the twenty-first century." "This is the first time the whole development of higher education and the views of many of its proponents has been subject to this kind of scrutiny."--BOOK JACKET." ;
