NEW BOOK: Higher Education in Germany—Recent Developments in an International Perspective by Otto Hüther and Georg Krücken

The new book by Otto Hüther and Georg Krücken analyzes the developments of the last 2 decades of German higher education. It provides a comprehensive and detailed account of both new dynamics and stable paths in the German higher education system.

"Higher Education in Germany" discusses the main higher education structures in Germany, both conceptually and with a particular emphasis on recent trends in German higher education. As the German system is clearly embedded in broader, transnational trends, the authors analyse recent developments from an international perspective. As such, the book provides a comprehensive and detailed account of both new dynamics and stable paths in the German higher education system.

 „The foreign observer of German higher education, even the informed foreign observer, struggles to find denominators, not to mention common denominators of a bewildering array of approaches. Otto Hüther and Georg Krücken, in this book, do an absolutely splendid job of offering theoretical perspectives, qualitative and quantitative data, and comparative assessments“ (Gerhard Casper, President Emeritus and Professor Emeritus, Stanford University)
