Academics' International Teaching Journeys provides personal narratives of nine international social science academics in foreign countries as they adapt and develop their teaching. The team of international contributors provide an invaluable resource for other academics who may be exposed to similar situations and may find these narratives useful in negotiating their own conflicts and challenges that they may encounter in being an international academic. The narratives provide a fascinating reference point and a wide range of perspectives of teaching experiences from across the world, including Europe, Australia, North America and the Caribbean. The book offers a timely spotlight on contemporary issues of globalisation that many higher education institutions around the world may encounter. It contributes to the originality of constructing new knowledge in the field of transnational higher education - a modern phenomenon which will be increasingly prominent in the current and next generation in the globalised higher education contexts.

A brilliant collection of theoretically grounded personal experiences of teaching in foreign higher educational environments. A must read for researchers and academics in Higher Education. * Felix Maringe, Professor, University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa * In this stimulating book social science and people's lives converge. Cross-border mobility has now reached such a scale as to continually enrich the education systems that people move between. This aggregated transformation is made up of many smaller bio-transformations, every one of them distinctive and enriching of others, as Academics' Individual Teaching Journeys shows us. * Simon Marginson, Director of the ESRC/HEFCE Centre for Global Higher Education, University College London, UK *
