About this book

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.

Reviews

"Reflecting on Comparative and International Education is a well-conceptualized and well-executed critical analysis of the current state of the field of comparative and international education. The volume includes contributions from some of the leading scholars in the field of critical pedagogy theory and its application in this current era of globalization. The editor has made a major contribution to our understanding of the current state of the relationship between diplomacy and comparative and international education. For that reason alone, it should be on the 'must-read' lists for all students and practitioners of comparative educational policy analysis."
—Edmond J. Keller, Distinguished Professor Emeritus, University of California, Los Angeles, USA
"I cannot think of a more current, comprehensive and compelling collection of writings in the field of comparative and international education than what is contained in this remarkable book. Here, in one place, are some of the finest writings by scholars whose scholarly ideas shaped the field drawing on perspectives from economics, teacher education, politics, sociology, and gender studies (to name a few), and whose professional lives have been dedicated to the study of education across borders. This book will serve as an invaluable reference book for graduate students and a vital teaching resource for academic teachers invested in the past, present, and future of global education."—Jonathan D. Jansen, Distinguished Professor, Stellenbosch University, South Africa

"We live in rapidly changing and globally challenging times that make critical reflection especially pertinent for the multidisciplinary field of comparative and international education. This book makes a timely American contribution to this process by drawing upon the perspectives of selected senior Fellows of the Comparative and International Education Society (CIES). Within the thirteen well-structured chapters, a combination of historically and theoretically grounded insights into past and emergent disruptions to the field can be found. This will do much to help current and future generations of scholars to offer further critical analyses, creative contributions, and re-conceptualizations for this resurgent global field."
—Michael Crossley, Emeritus Professor, University of Bristol, UK
