Structurally clear and well written ... as a textbook this is a very professional job and it is a pleasure to read. * Comparative Education * This is a book that questions the assumptions, beliefs, and principles of comparative education. While the nation state is at the heart of so much of the field, Robin Shields argues strongly toward truly global and international perspectives. * Val Rust, Director of the Center for International and Development Education, University of California, Los Angeles, USA * Globalization and International Education provides an excellent survey of the key theories and concepts that have shaped the field of comparative education and which are necessary for all students embarking upon the study of education reform in an international context. Clear concepts and insightful surveys of the main theoretical debates provide newcomers to the field with a firm basis to embark upon comparative study. This book is essential reading for undergraduate students of education policy and reform and provides a fine introduction for others seeking to understand this complex, important and burgeoning field. * Stephen Carney, Associate Professor of Comparative Education, Roskilde University, Denmark * Robin Shields delivers what he promises; an accessible, insightful and wide-ranging account of the various dynamics and manifestations of globalisation and international education. It is a great resource for those of us seeking to make sense of this fast changing terrain. * Susan L. Robertson, Professor of Education, Centre for Globalisation, Education and Societies, University of Bristol, UK * Robin Shields provides an engaging, timely and very accessible resource for anyone interested in current issues in international development and education. The more theoretical discussions are juxtaposed with local case studies and examples, links to resources and questions to frame reflections on the issues at hand. This book will become an insightful and handy travel companion for those either setting out on or continuing their academic and professional journeys in the field of international development. * Karen Edge, Senior Lecturer in Education, Institute of Education, University of London, UK * Aimed at students of Education Studies, the book provides a clear introduction to key international issues in education and considers the change in education associated with globalisation. * IAU Horizons *
