Synopsis

The essays are very high quality, written by well-qualified researchers, and address a subject of high interest to those concerned with development/political issues related to the Middle East. They...make a significant contribution to the field of educational reform and development, identity construction and nation building. * Eleanor Doumato, Watson Institute, Brown University This volume will prove a valuable contribution for scholars and policymakers interested in educational policy, curricular reform, historiography, and Arab World identities. * Nabil Al-Tikriti, University of Mary Washington Education systems and textbooks in selected countries of the Middle East are increasingly the subject of debate. This volume presents and analyzes the major trends as well as the scope and the limits of education reform initiatives undertaken in recent years. In curricula and teaching materials, representations of the "Self" and the "Other" offer insights into the contemporary dynamics of identity politics.

By building on a network of scholars working in various countries in the Middle East itself, this book aims to contribute to the evolution of a field of comparative education studies in this region.
