Gokulsing (U. of East London) has written a number of articles and books on education and the media. In his latest text, he presents a collection of 12 specially commissioned chapters by 14 academics and researchers from the UK exploring recent university reforms in England. Focusing mainly on the White Papers of 2003 and the Higher Education Act of 2004, the essays examine the new scheme of university funding in England and its implications for marketing, accountability, quality assurance and its concomitant objectives of access, widening participation, public service and social inclusion. While acknowledging the effects that globalization, knowledge-based economies and rapid technological changes are having on the UK's higher education system, they suggest that the government's policies of variable fees and social inclusion are unlikely to achieve the desired goals.
