Summary "Comparative and international research in education is being transformed and revitalised by changing geopolitical relations, the acceleration of globalisation, major advances in ICT and paradigmatic shifts across the social sciences. This multidisciplinary book critically examines the implications of these changes for those engaged in such work worldwide. Ground-breaking and insightful, it draws on the latest research within and beyond the field to give a comprehensive overview of contemporary developments and emergent trends." "The book argues for increased cultural and contextual sensitivity in educational research and development in order that comparative and international studies might make a more effective contribution to educational theory, policy and practice worldwide. This multidiscipiinary work will be welcomed by theorists and researchers in education and the social sciences, as well as teachers, policy-makers and anyone concerned with improving dialogue and understanding across cultures and nations."--Jacket.
