ABSTRACT

This volume gathers a cast of eminent scholars for a critical and comparitive analysis of how neoliberal education policies have functioned in a range of countries in different stages of economic development. Treating case studies from Europe, Asia, the Americas and the Middle East, the volume shows how globalization operates differently in different societal contexts.
