Britain's universities are changing. Higher education is being harnessed to the interests of big business on an unprecedented scale. Tuition fees, fat cat salaries for vice-chancellors and an increasing class divide are the reality of Britain's universities today.
New Labour and the vice-chancellors claim this is justified by the needs of the "knowledge economy".
Alex Callinicos challenges these claims and examines the prospects for resistance to the neoliberal transformation of our universities.
