As a worldwide phenomenon, the internationalization of curriculum studies is at its beginning. While much has been written about South African education, now, for the first time, gathered in one collection are glimpses of South African curriculum studies described by six distinctive points of view. Included are sections of a "micro-moment" of internationalization in which South African scholars reply to questions raised by scholars working elsewhere. Knowing what curriculum studies colleagues are thinking worldwide is the first step in understanding curriculum internationally. Recognizing the national distinctiveness of curriculum studies enables scholars to underscore how national history and culture influence their own research.
