Comparative and International Education: Leading Perspectives from the Field (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


Featuring a foreword penned by Ambassador (Ret) and Professor Emeritus Horace G. Dawson, this volume articulates the significance of comparative and international education and affairs as experienced by elected Fellows of the Comparative and International Education Society-including some as Fellows of the American Association for the Advancement of Science and the International Academy of Education. Based upon their decades of multiple research modalities and senior administrative engagements with universities, USAID, National Science Foundation, World Bank, Fulbright, and other agencies, the Fellows explicate critical historical phenomena and postulate how future directions of the field may evolve. The volume expounds the salience of cross cutting and interdisciplinary themes by analyzing how the social sciences, humanities, and international affairs have affected the evolving nature of the field. Pedagogical epistemologies, public and educational policies, and paradigms emerge from applied research as new motifs are presented in view of geopolitical and global affairs that will affect education in coming decades.
