Reviews

"Curriculum studies in China presents a panoramic view of curriculum change in modern Chinese universities. Pinar's book elaborates fully on the issues concerning educators today. This book is unique and worth reading for researchers, graduate students, and policy makers to understand how China's social change is linked with curriculum reform, and its impact on Chinese education." - Wanhua Ma, Professor of Education, and Director, Center of International Higher Education, Peking University, China

"Curriculum Studies in China is an outstanding example deconstructing the recent curriculum reforms as well as the history of curriculum studies. The book presents how curriculum studies in China is dealing with both tradition Confucianism, Taoism, Buddhism and a "secularized" insertion into a globalized economy. It vividly demonstrates how curriculum studies in China is welcoming difference in order to enhance their distinctiveness." - Elizabeth Macedo, Professor of Curriculum and Associate Provost at State University of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; President of the International Association for the Advancement of Curriculum Studies
