This book examines four theses regarding higher education and development in the Asian region: the interplay between cultural traditions, economic development, globalization, and the evolution of the 'hybrid' university. Top scholars from around the world evaluate how closely these hypotheses resemble present circumstances and policies and seek to determine the elements making up Asia-Pacific higher education and shaping the region's education history.
