Editorial Reviews

"Firmly rooted in the classical literature of comparative education, this volume illustrates the field’s coherence and comprehensive reach through a consideration of policy debates at all levels of education and in multiple countries and regions. Current and emerging issues, from  EFA implementation to transnational higher education, are analyzed through a comparative lens, and integrated within a rich historical and sociological discourse. Contributors range from well-known names in the field to younger scholars who are already making their mark." --Ruth Hayhoe, University of Toronto
