Overview

Comparative Education: The Dialectic of the Global and the Local, Third Edition brings together many of the outstanding scholars in the field of comparative and international education. It provides new perspectives on the dynamic interplay of global, national, and local forces as they shape the functions and outcomes of education systems in specific contexts. The book calls for a rethinking of the nation-state as the basic unit for analyzing school-society relations and emphasizes the need to study social movements in relation to educational reform. It also emphasizes the value of feminist, postcolonial, and culturally sensitive perspectives to comparative inquiry into the potential of education systems to contribute to individual development and social change. Lastly, it provides new ways of conceptualizing equality of educational opportunity and outcomes and gives detailed critical accounts of how various international financial and technical assistance agencies shape educational policy and practice in specific regions of the world.

Editorial Reviews

Philip G. Altbach
The most comprehensive and up-to-date comparative education text available.
Ruth Hayhoe
Comparative Education: The Dialectic of the Global and the Local, fourth edition, has become a classic in the field, widely used for the framing of teaching, research and activism. Arnove’s authoritative and insightful introduction to this 4th edition demonstrates the crucial value of the comparative impulse and an international mindset in addressing current educational issues in the complex and rapidly changing second decade of the 21st century.
Douglas Kellner
The Dialectic of the Global and Local engages key issues, transformations, and challenges to the field of comparative education today. Articulating the diversity and ongoing debates within the field, a variety of scholars present insightful analyses and problems of contemporary education within global, comparative, and critical perspectives that make the text a valuable resource for students, scholars, and those concerned about understanding the importance of education in the contemporary world.
Iveta Silova
Comparative Education: The Dialectic of the Global and the Localchallenges the metanarratives of neoliberal globalization and forcefully sets the agenda for pursuing social justice in education through academic research and education policy making. It is an impressive collective effort to redefine schooling as a source of social action, reconnect politics and education, and reengage comparative education in the struggle for social justice and equity in the context of globalization.
Michael W. Apple
The third edition of this book is an even more significant achievement than the first two editions. Arnove and Torres extend the reach and power of the issues covered, making this volume an even more valuable tool for all who are concerned with comparative education and with education's role internationally.
Henry M. Levin
For those of us who thought that comparative education has grown stale, this is a breath of free air. The overall editorial integration is superb and the selections bring new insights into the discourse. This has become a standard text in many comparative education courses.
