A Half-Century of Indian Higher Education features a select collection of writings on Indian higher education by Professor Philip G. Altbach. Professor Altbachs research papers and articles on Indian higher education published in journals, periodicals, newspapers and books worldwide not only established him as a noted expert on Indian higher education but also inspired numerous studies in this area.

This volume, edited by Pawan Agarwal, brings together 35 seminal writings of Professor Altbach on universities and colleges, knowledge production and distribution, academic profession, globalisation and open-door policies, academic publishing, campus politics and comparative studies on Indian and Chinese systems. The articles provide an invaluable access to the various issues that have profoundly shaped Indias higher education system during the last five decades. They give a comprehensive reading of the development of higher education in post-Independence India in a simple yet gripping style and affirm Professor Altbachs enduring commitment to this area.

The book includes in-depth reflective articles for each of its seven sections by well-known experts on higher education. It also features an insightful interview with Professor Altbach that illuminates many vital areas of higher education worldwide.
