MEDIA REVIEWS
The most comprehensive and up-to-date comparative education text available. -- Philip G. Altbach, Monan University Professor and director of the Center for International Higher Education at Boston College
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. -- Ruth Hayhoe Ph.D, Professor, Ontario Institute for Studies in Education, University of Toronto
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. -- Douglas Kellner, UCLA; author of Media Culture and Media Spectacle and the Crisis of Democracy
Comparative Education: The Dialectic of the Global and the Local challenges 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. -- Iveta Silova, Associate Professor of Comparative Education, Lehigh University
