The book will make both empirical and conceptual contributions to the debate on privatization of HE in China. Empirically, it aims to fill a gap in our knowledge of privatization of HE in North China. To this end, I chose Beijing as a case for analysis and visited nine HEIs. The case study strategy is also complemented by extensive review of national policies to reveal problems beyond the specific case of Beijing and of national concerns. The effects of the cultural and socio-economic background and the unique state-party controlling system on HE management will be stressed.  Conceptually, most existing studies on privatization of HE in China adopt a policy analysis approach while research on privatization of other public sectors or in other countries is frequently guided by economic theories. This book thus tries to combine both social policy and econometric approaches to provide a systematic and detailed investigation of the privatization process in the HE sphere. It also improves the understanding of the applicability of western theories in the Chinese context.
