||"The author argues that the number of higher education institutions in the United States has peaked--that is, has hit the maximum for meeting consumer demand--and he tracks the trends in higher education he sees as the result. His near-future predictions are meant to prepare university administrators who want to anticipate and adapt to shrinking enrollments, reduced public support, and a proliferation of competing technological options for education"-- Provided by publisher.
