Reviews

“International students inhabit a complex space in which transnational mobilities and connectivities define the cultural dynamics of their experiences, as well as their sense of identity –their expectations and aspirations. This book brings together a set of most perceptive and thoughtful papers, written by scholars both emerging and established, which break new ground in how we might understand the ways in which international students work within and across national borders, traditions and politics.” (Fazal Rizvi, University of Melbourne, Australia)
