The Great Brain Race
How Global Universities Are Reshaping the World
On Sale April 21, 2010
In The Great Brain Race, veteran education writer and Kauffman Foundation senior fellow Ben Wildavsky presents what experts are calling a "masterful" and "compelling" account of how globalization has come to higher education - and why the emergence of a worldwide academic marketplace is an opportunity, not a threat.
"The Great Brain Race takes the reader to university campuses around the globe in order to powerfully make the case that open borders are as—and perhaps more—important in education as they are in trade and economics. You can't understand the way the world will work in this coming century without understanding the phenomenon Wildavsky reveals here. The Great Brain Race is an enormous contribution to the discussion."
