"This book argues that the college choices of ethnic Chinese in Korea changed in relation to their political and legal status within Korean society… This study examines the reasons behind the changing educational trends within the context of majority-minority relations in Korea, an extremely homogeneous society. - Sheena Choi, Ph.D., Assistant Professor, Indiana University."

"This book provides a comparative analysis of the academic profession in East Asia. It examines the changing shape of the academic professions in (South) Korea and Malaya or Malaysia, and Singapore since the colonial period as a reflection of both the inherited models of higher education and their redefinition after the colonial period. - Terri Kim, Ph.D., Principal Researcher, Yonsei University, Seoul."
