About the Series

Routledge Studies in Education and Society in Asia

This series focuses on analyses of Asian educational practices and structures in their broader social, cultural, political and economic context. The emphasis is on furthering our understanding of why Asian education systems have developed in particular ways, and what is (or is not) distinctively 'Asian' about them. In addition to single-country studies, proposals for works of a historical and comparative nature are strongly encouraged. The series will appeal to scholars of various disciplinary backgrounds such as Asian Studies, Education and Social Sciences looking to reach readers beyond the boundaries of their own discipline.
