Reviews

“This volume contributes significantly to ongoing debates on the influence of East Asian values and traditions, neoliberalism, globalization, and the internationalization of higher education in the development of East Asian higher education and the dynamics involved in such developments. ... this volume on the dynamics of higher education development in East Asia should be considered required reading for those dealing in higher education policy and those in international higher education.” (Roger Y. Chao Jr., Pacific Affairs, pacificaffairs.ubc.ca, May, 2016)
