MEDIA REVIEWS
Clive Harber has done his readers a real service in bringing together an array of established and new Southern African authors to provide us with new insights into both familiar and less well-documented national cases. The book is an invaluable addition to the comparative education literature. * Simon McGrath, Director of Research, School of Education, University of Nottingham, UK *
Much has been achieved by education throughout Southern Africa in recent decades, while much also remains to be done in this diverse and rapidly changing region. This collection of well-informed and insightful analyses provides readers with valuable, carefully contextualised and locally grounded assessments of key educational achievements and challenges across the nine countries that are examined. * Michael Crossley, Professor of Comparative and International Education, University of Bristol, UK *
