Review Text

"This book is a most timely and valuable contribution to a critical understanding of globalization and education in the South Asian context. It is a rich compilation of theoretical analyses, policy critiques, and institutional case studies providing substantive insights for scholars and practitioners committed to the transformation of schooling, higher education, and adult education for justice, human rights, and decolonized cultural identities." - Toh Swee-Hin, distinguished professor, University for Peace, Costa Rica and laureate, UNESCO Prize for Peace Education (2000)

"Dip Kapoor and his coeditors are to be congratulated on putting together an exceptionally fine volume of cutting-edge scholarship on South Asian trends and issues in schooling, higher education, and adult education. A volume which adopts an insider-regional perspective and employs a variety of theoretical perspectives is long overdue. Globalization, Culture, and Education in South Asia will set a new benchmark in South Asian Studies and especially in discussions of future prospects for South Asian education." - S. Gopinathan, adjunct professor, Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore

"This diverse collection of essays draws a complex and insightful portrait of how global economic and education policies are received, revised, and contested at national, subnational, and community levels in different countries of the subcontinent, including those countries which are generally underrepresented in the field of education studies. Owing to their sustained engagement in policy advocacy and grassroots activism in the subcontinent, the authors avoid gross generalizations and polemical writing to provide us with a richly detailed and imaginative portrait of the dynamics of globalization and the critical place of education within it." - Sangeeta Kamat, associate professor, School of Education, UMASS Amherst, United States
