The Sociology of Higher Educationis a stimulating collection of papers originally published in the British Journal of Sociology of Education which illustrate the rich theoretical and methodological diversity of sociological studies of higher education over the last five years. A global group of leading contributors explore the unintended consequences of transformations in global higher education and the prospects for creative responses to such seismic changes. The chapters within this collection demonstrate the power of sociological theoretical and conceptual frameworks, key issues relating to social inequality, diversity and disadvantage within higher education, the geographic and topic diversity in the field and some of the key challenges facing higher education in the 21st century.
