Professors Eugene Trani and Robert Holsworth, both of Virginia Commonwealth University in Richmond, Virginia, have produced in this book an interesting, insightful, and notably wide ranging discussion of what they see as a key aspect of modern higher education-its role in community and economic development. They offer this perspective largely from the vantage point of institutional leadership but, given that, the span is wide.

Eugene Trani and Robert Holsworth Rowman and Littlefield Publishers, In. Plymouth, UK: (Published in partnership with the American Council on Education), 2010, 281pp. Trani and Holsworth begin the book with the basic premise that colleges and universities are in the midst of a major transformation that will redefine relationships to the broader community. This affiliation, coupled with the global movement toward a knowledge economy, formulates the indispensable university. The changing landscape of higher education should be noted by key administrators; particularly presidents should be aware of the opportunity for institutions to nurture entrepreneurial growth and establish partnerships with various organizations to address community needs.

The Indispensable University describes the innovative transformation of institutions of higher education (HEIs) across the world, in response to the emerging realities of the twenty-first century global knowledge-based economy, as well as describes how HEIs are defining many of today's economic realities on a regional level. HEIs continue to drive economic development through their traditional roles of purchaser, employer, real estate developer, workforce developer and community developer. But these roles now must be executed more strategically and collaboratively. Also, the twenty-first century economy offers universities unique opportunities to generate the intellectual and financial capital that drives emerging knowledge-based industries.Case studies are drawn from: urban America; rural America; Europe; the Middle East; and emerging countries. Some of the topics covered include the following: the role of university presidents as change leaders; the relationship between higher education institutions and the political leadership of cities, states, and nations; successful models of partnerships between higher education and the private sector; and future challenges and opportunities facing the modern university.
