          Abstract

          The work of Burton Clark extended over more than half a century – and also from its original base in sociology to embrace wider inter-disciplinary studies. His identification of the major research themes in higher education continues to be valid, despite the substantial changes that have taken place in the scale, structure and values of the system. Although his work continued to evolve taking in new topics such as the entrepreneurial university, it continued to be reflect the 'sociological imagination' which had been his starting point – and which explained its conceptual clarity and methodological integrity.
