Review

..."It is a valuable read, and a good resource for thinking about education policy in an environment of rapid globalization...Burbules' analysis is insightful."-Harvey Sarles, On the Horizon ..."provide the readers witha thoughtful collection of essays that should help inform research and thinking regarding the issues at hand...It stimulated my thinking on the topics at hand. It would certainly be a good reader for a class on these subjects."-Susan Rippberger, Qualitative Studies in Education "Burbules and Torres bring an outstanding collection of critical essays to bear on the complexities of rapidly changing international relationships and their influence on education.Paradoxically, like the phenomenon of globalization itself, the wide range of perspectives included in "Globalization and Education may also be seen as the book's greatest strength. Most of the key concerns associated with debates about education and globalization are more or less covered inthis volume, especially those linked to economic, political, and cultural concerns. Moreover, the essays are well written, thoughtful, and provocative. The book is a must read for scholars, practitioners, and policy makers concerned with education and globalization.."-Comparative Education Review, February 2002 "Burbules and Torres bring an outstanding collection of critical essays to bear on the complexities of rapidly changing international relationships and their influence on education...Most of the key concerns associated with debates about education and globalization are covered in this volume, especially those linked to economic, political, and cultural concerns.
