"This edited volume bristles with fresh scholarly approaches and insights of an emergent generation of engaged scholars grappling with the issues and problems of higher education in South Africa. The issues dealt with here are varied and encompassing. They are treated with intellectual delicacy and probing sensitivity, articulacy, informed data and bold conclusions. They serve well!" Professor Kwesi Kwaa Prah, Emeritus Professor of Sociology, University of the Western Cape, and Founder of the Centre for Advanced Studies of African Society
