Higher ed in India

A Half-Century of Indian Higher Education, a collection of essays written by Lynch School of Education Research Professor Philip G. Altbach, director of the Center for International Higher Education, is the subject of a book review in The Hindu. The reviewer calls Altbach’s scholarship “highly accessible, being illuminated throughout by a clear perspective and a compassionate sense of what life is like for Indian academics and students… a priceless chart for deep and deeply troubled waters.”
