About this book

This book explores how to be fully cross-cultural and intercultural with research and theory building in educational leadership. It adopts an integrated approach to the examination of common issues across and between cultures and contexts. Each chapter examines an issue or a set of issues that builds on evidence from a minimum of three countries across at least two continents. The data collection methods are consistent for all countries and therefore allow meaningful conclusions to be drawn across the field. All six continents are represented in the book, including both developing and developed countries, to ensure an open dialogue and an innovative approach to lay the foundations for future research.

Reviews

“Paul Miller has brought together an impressive list of contributors to explore leadership and culture from an unparalleled global perspective, covering 17 countries from all six continents.   As globalisation threatens to impose an identikit view of how schools should be led and managed, it is refreshing to note the often subtle, but always significant, ways in which culture and context underpin different approaches to common problems facing school leaders.  By exploring a range of important issues, through multifaceted perspectives, this book makes an invaluable contribution to the current literature on school leadership.” (Tony Bush, Professor of Educational Leadership, The University of Nottingham, UK and Malaysia)

“Paul Miller’s latest book represents a carefully conceived and insightfully constructed contribution to the increasingly important need for intercultural and cross-cultural research in guiding educational leadership in today’s globalized world. Each chapter was intentionally designed to include work based in developed and developing countries in different continents using a common research design. Thus, Miller goes beyond the existing comparative literature to provide authentic, critical insight into the practice of educational leadership in multiple cultural contexts. His choice of contributors and countries for this book shines a light on scholars and educational contexts often neglected within the body of English-language scholarship in educational leadership.” (Ken Brien, President, Commonwealth Council for Educational Administration and Management (CCEAM))
