From the Publisher"Gupta presents one of a series of nine volumes intended to provide undergraduate students (and perhaps advanced high school students) with an understanding of the similarities and differences among educational systems throughout the world from a historical perspective. Offering individual chapters on schooling in Afghanistan, Bangladesh, Bhutan, India, the Maldives, Nepal, Pakistan, and Sri Lanka, the volume focuses on such issues as the relation of schooling curricula and teaching practices to national culture; religion; identity; social, political, and economic structures, and economic development."

"Ultimately, these books should find useful homes in high school and college libraries; as components of international and comparative education courses (at the undergraduate and even graduate levels); as a reference for instructors of introductory-level Asian survey courses; and as additions to personal libraries of academicians who wish to understand better the diverse means, modes, and mechanisms of education across the countries and territories of East, South, and Southeast Asia."
