"This is an excellent and timely book showing how universities in Asia and the Pacific respond in their research activities to new challenges. The thorough comparisons of Japan and Australia with China, India, Indonesia, the Philippines, and other countries clearly show that the authors succeed in addressing common challenges for universities. The book demonstrates that governmental research and development policies play an enormously strong role in guiding universities in improving their research activities." Ulrich Teichler, Professor, the International Centre for Higher Education Research, Kassel
