Political transformations have a decisive power to shape education systems in general and teacher education programs in particular. How these processes unfold is especially interesting in educational systems which are not generally known to Anglo-Saxon educators, like Germany, Russia, or China. Several chapters in this volume discuss the impact of statewide political transformation on teacher education programs. Political transformation is one of the important features of societies in the second half of the 20th century. Political transformations and changing ideologies are part of the history of teaching and teacher education. It is important to be aware of this process in order to keep the accumulated experience of the teaching profession alive and contribute to present day education policy and practice. Bringing ideological-political perspectives to bear on teacher education can deepen our understanding of the relation between society and teacher education. Moreover, it highlights the pivotal role that teachers play in any society. This volume presents different ways of analyzing teacher education programs through the lens of different ideologies and the influence of societal transformations.

MEDIA REVIEWS
The book Political Transformations and Teacher Education Programs, contributed by experienced and seasoned scholars and co-edited by two world-leading scholars, provides a cutting-edge discussion on development of teacher education programs under different political regimes and historical influences. It provides a platform for sharing experiences and offering profound insights for charting future pathways for worldwide teacher education. It is a readable and informative book strongly recommended for readers. -- John Chi-kin Lee, vice president (Academic) and chair professor of curriculum and instruction, the Education University of Hong Kong; Chang Jiang Scholar Chair Professor
This is a book taking us straight into some of the most conflicted contexts for educational work. The courageous and well-informed discussions of educational challenges teacher education and teacher educators face in contested political climates should be on the `must read' list not only for all educators, but also for decision makers. -- Kari Smith, professor, Norwegian University of Science and Technology (NTNU) and Head of Norwegian Research School in Teacher Education (NAFOL)
Across the world, teacher education is increasingly under scrutiny. This well-structured and thoughtful collection of ideas, arguments and insights into teacher education helps to shed new light on what it means to think about teacher education as something more than training and to do so by moving outside of the more traditional Western approaches and practices. This is a timely book that broadens our understanding of teacher education at a time when moving beyond the status quo really matters. -- John Loughran, executive dean and Sir John Monash Distinguished Professor
