Globalization of Education Reviews


"The book is well written and carefully researched. It is a useful resource for students and scholars seeking a detailed analysis of different globalization perspectives."--Comparative Education Review

"I would strongly recommend this book to audiences in higher education, educational policy, curriculum studies, and globalization studies (supplemented by other literature), because it contextualizes many of the educational issues we deal within global policy frameworks. . . This book not only answered my questions about the global superstructure but also provided an important reminder that we cannot simply ignore global processes in our evaluations of educational (including higher education) policies, practices, discourses, and curriculum in local contexts."-Review of Higher Education
