Key factors that impact upon children's educational motivation and engagement are here considered from an international and comparative perspective. Based upon a major programme of research undertaken in sites in England, the USA and Russia, the authors identify interrelated elements operating at international, national and local levels. These include children's self-perceptions, goals, interests and aspirations, curriculum and pedagogy, peer and parental influences, teacher perceptions, school traditions and practices, together with the pervasive influence of broader social, cultural, historical and economic factors.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'Elliott, Hufton, Willis, and Illushin's new book is one of the first to bring together diverse international perspectives on adolescent motivation. Using data from England, the United States, and Russia, these authors provide thorough and enlightening comparisons of student motivation across these settings. The book situates students' achievement motivation within the unique historical contexts of each of these societies, and incorporates current state-of-the-art psychological theory and research. This book will appeal to a broad readership, including researchers, teachers, policy-makers, and parents'. Eric M. Anderman, Ph.D., The University of Kentucky
