Higher education in India has a long Historical past. Universities like Nalanda (located in Bihar) were well known all over the world. The Chinese pilgrims visiting India between 400 BC and AD 800 referred in their their travel accounts to the excellent work being done by these universities. The existence of flourishing institutions of higher learning in ancient India is also attested by significant developments in intellectual fields like literature, literary criticism, philosophy logic, medicine, mathematics and astronomy. Universities as institutions appear to have declined in the middle ages but the pursuit of higher learning was continued by individual scholars. After the advent of the British in the 19th century, higher education in India was put in a westernized mould with English as the medium of instruction and with the introduction of new subjects. This Encyclopedia of Higher education is unique in all manners. This will prove a useful source of information to researchers, teachers and librarians.
