This book is a compilation of new scholarship in the field of global education. Previously unaddressed or barely touched upon topics include: the historical evolution of the global education movement; the development of a foundation for the formation of a philosophy of global education; an analysis of the competing orientations of global education and multicultural education; mentorship in global education pedagogy based on the master apprentice model; and the latest research of the impact of national policies in education on global teacher education practice. A unique contribution captures the complexities and geopolitical context during Russia's early hours of democracy in integrating global education in Russian education. Written by internationally acclaimed scholars, this book is at the cutting edge of new creative scholarship in global education. Visions in Global Education is a must-read for teachers in every stage of their careers, and will be useful in a variety of classrooms addressing global education.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"A cutting-edge effort on the part of its editor and authors. Any social studies educator, or any advanced graduate student, owes [it] to themselves to read this book and reflect on it for an informed perspective on twenty-first century education. Bravo!" (Anna S. Ochoa-Becker, Professor Emerita, School of Education, Indiana University-Bloomington; Past President, National Council for the Social Studies)
"This book is a comprehensive treatment of the state of the art of global education and will serve as an excellent starting point for teachers, teacher educators, and researchers working in the field today. Past and current leaders in global education present case studies, syntheses of scholarship, and their visions for needed practice, research, and theory in the future." (Carole L. Hahn, Charles Howard Candler Professor of Educational Studies, Emory University)
"This collection makes a major and most welcome contribution to the theory and practice of global education. It comes at an especially fertile moment when `global education' is all the rage but much that is done under its name betrays the very idea. Kirkwood-Tucker has given us an enormously thoughtful book." (Walter Parker, Professor of Education, University of Washington)
"Distinguished global educators have contributed their visions to this book. Chapters on the history of the movement and global education to build peace are the bookends, and in between the reader will find both general chapters on topics such as research and practice in teacher education and characteristics of a globally minded teacher, and specific case studies of schools in Miami-Dade County, Florida, and Russian education reform." (Angene Wilson, Professor Emerita of Social Studies Education, University of Kentucky)
"This is an important and timely contribution to the urgent debate on appropriate education for present and future global citizens. The potential of global education for the creation of more just, peaceful, and sustainable societies is well illustrated, as are the complexities and challenges of the task ahead. Examples of successful initiatives in the past, alongside a comprehensive history of the global education movement, provide a substantive platform on which contemporary global educators can build and shape their demands for public education that is relevant and responsive to the world in which we live." (Graham Pike, Professor and Dean of International Education, Vancouver Island University, Canada)
"Kirkwood-Tucker's book provides a useful overview of recent research and time-honored projects in global education. The book is a unique compilation of conceptual, empirical, and case studies about the development of the field and many will find value in this book." (William Gaudelli, Associate Professor of Social Studies and Education, Teachers College, Columbia University)
