How do you build a world-class research university from scratch? In today's ever-faster, global economy, many countries are reflecting on the merits of building elite global universities to make their mark in world research.

Altbach and Jamil Salmi, examines the recent experience of 11 universities in 9 countries on 4 continents that have grappled with the challenges of building successful research institutions under difficult circumstances, and synthesizes the lessons learned. This book will be essential reading for governments, tertiary education leaders, employers, and citizens, considering reforms and innovations to improve their country's position in the global scene.
