Ulrich Teichler announces the publication of his book, Higher Education – What Else? The Story of a Lifetime. In Conversation with Anna Kosmützky and Christiane Rittgerott. In the book Ulrich, who turns 80 this month, reflects on more than five decades of higher education research. He comments on the economic miracle and university expansion, the student movement, experiments and crises of the 1970s, organizational breakdown, reunification, internationalization, rankings, and the management cult – all historical stages reflected in higher education. The book is available from Budrich Academic Press (ISBN 978-3-96665-058-8).
