From the reviews:"It is ... weighty in a conceptual sense and adds significantly to the field of comparative education. The editors are distinguished figures in the field ... . They have assembled a wide range of contributors including many well-known authors; and their Handbook has both breadth and depth. ... the Handbook indeed achieves its goal of assessing the past and present of the field, and of suggesting future directions. It will serve as a lasting benchmark and reference, both for individual chapters and in its entirety." (Mark Bray, International Review of Education, Vol. 57 (1-2), April, 2011)
