Approaches and methods in comparative education research are of obvious importance, but do not always receive adequate attention. This book contributes new insights within the longstanding traditions of the field. A particular feature is the focus on different units of analysis. Individual chapters compare places, systems, times, cultures, values, policies, curricula and other units.
I have been involved in teaching for more than forty years, in France, Wales, mainland China, Hong Kong, Australia and England. As an academic, I have written on the theme of curriculum, often about English as a foreign language. I am also interested in the use of comparative education in research.
Another interest is textbooks. I have written several series for Chinese students in Hong Kong and the mainland, and also one book for European students.
