"Dancing with the Devil: Information Technology and the New Competition in Higher Education" is fascinating not only for the way it addresses the wicked problem of effectively incorporating technology into learning, but for how contemporary it continues to be more than 12 years after publication in a field of study that feels as if it is evolving faster than we can document that evolutionary process. The book, furthermore, serves as a valuable resource for those involved in workplace learning and performance (staff training) programs as well as with libraries, museums, and other organizations with clear and vital roles to play in lifelong learning. The various writers who contributed to "Dancing" cover a variety of timely themes: learning opportunities that are available anywhere and anytime that learners can access them; "the need for new thinking about property rights, risk sharing, royalties, residuals, and other cost-sharing and compensation strategies" (pp. 44-45); and reminders that online learning isn't necessarily or even inherently less costly than face-to-face learning--a valuable response to those who mistakenly promote online learning primarily as a way to reduce expenses (pp. 90-91). With "Dancing with the Devil" in our hands, the challenges we face as trainer-teacher-learners are clearly defined--and much in need of our attention. ( )

"No one in a position of leadership can afford to ignore the issues raised in the book."
--Continuing Higher Education Review

"Helpful insights into the different uses and limits of technology. An important resource for university leaders."
--Gilbert R. Whitaker, Jr., dean, Jesse H. Jones Graduate School of Management, Rice University

As distance education, distributed learning, virtual campuses, and digital libraries become more important for students, academic institutions can no longer rely on traditional methods to survive and prosper. In this landmark collection of essays, seven highly respected institutional, association, and financial leaders examine the challenges facing today's colleges and universities. They explore a number of critical issues, including how to deal with for-profit competition, how to build a powerful technological infrastructure, how to create administrative structures that reward and support technological innovation, and how to secure funding for such transformations.
