Reviews

“The book is a valuable contribution to the fields of international and development education and of international and comparative education. … For those familiar with Cambodia, those new to Cambodia studies, those interested in area studies, and those wanting to lean about a specific educational national context, this volume is a good reference. … A thoroughly good read!” (Phan Le Ha, Journal of Social Issues in Southeast Asia, Vol. 32 (2), July, 2017)

“This new volume on Cambodian education is an invaluable contribution to Cambodian Studies, Southeast Asian Studies, and comparative and international development education. … it is certainly an exceedingly valuable contribution, filling a huge gap in the literature and providing a comprehensive in-depth research based portrait of contemporary education in post-conflict Cambodia.” (Gerald W. Fry, Comparative Education Review, May, 2017)

“The book fills an important niche in the comprehension of Cambodia’s unique educational situation. Researchers, students, policymakers, and others who wish to gain an expansive understanding of the situation of education today in Cambodia would benefit from reading it. … graduate students will find this book helpful in terms of various research methodologies from employing existing data on education to conducting qualitative interviews and quantitative data analyses.” (Kelly Grace and Sothy Eng, Journal of Current Southeast Asian Affairs, Vol. 35 (3), 2016)
