"This book provides the audience with a detailed overview of Higher Education in Saudi Arabia. ... Not only will it benefit policy makers at the ministerial level, but also at the institutional level such as leaders, academics, researchers and students and beyond. ... The book, therefore, is highly recommended to whom higher education in Saudi Arabia is a concern." (Naif Alghamdi, Higher Education, Vol. 69, 2015)
