In "Globalization and Education: Critical Perspectives," an outstanding group of international contributors explore the increasingly important dimensions of globalization as it affects educational policy and practice in nation-states around the world. Changing conditions in a globalized world-including travel, international media, transnational capitalism, and the role of global organizations and institutions-all have profound implications for the formation and implementation of education policy. Addressing such issues as feminism, multiculturalism, and new technology, this collection of original essays will broaden the context in which educational policy decisions are viewed.
Contributors: Michael W. Apple, Jill Blackmore, Nicholas C. Burbules, Juan Ramon Capella, Luiza Cortesao, Greg Dimitriadis, Patrick Fitzsimmons, Douglas Kellner, Bob Lingard, Allan Luke, Carmen Luke, James Marshall, Cameron McCarthy, Raymond A. Morrow, Michael Peters, Thomas S. Popkewitz, Fazal Rizvi, Stephen R. Stoer, and Carlos Alberto Torres.

..."provide the readers witha thoughtful collection of essays that should help inform research and thinking regarding the issues at hand...It stimulated my thinking on the topics at hand. It would certainly be a good reader for a class on these subjects."
-Susan Rippberger, Qualitative Studies in Education
"Burbules and Torres bring an outstanding collection of critical essays to bear on the complexities of rapidly changing international relationships and their influence on education.Paradoxically, like the phenomenon of globalization itself, the wide range of perspectives included in "Globalization and Education may also be seen as the book's greatest strength. Most of the key concerns associated with debates about education and globalization are more or less covered inthis volume, especially those linked to economic, political, and cultural concerns. Moreover, the essays are well written, thoughtful, and provocative. The book is a must read for scholars, practitioners, and policy makers concerned with education and globalization.."
