Editorial Reviews

Review

This volume is a useful resource for students of the social foundations of education and for educators preparing for the challenges of increasing intercivilizational classrooms.
CHOICE

The strength of Spring's analysis lies in its comparative orientation. This is perhaps one of the first serious works that looks at the articulation of educational rights at the global level from a comparative perspective. It certainly paves way for other students, researchers, and scholars of comparative education to take up research along these lines.
Comparative Educational Review

...this book is worth a read, and cuts new ground in relating talk about educational rights to globalization. The very comparison of systems of rights around education, including liberty, equality, and educational opportunity, represents an important contribution to discussion and debate.
Globalization, Societies and Education

One ofthe few books that analyzes the meaning of universal freedom within the current debates over the globalization of capital. This is not only an important book, but an urgent one....
Peter McLaren
University of California, Los Angeles

Clear in organization and bold in content....The historical, international, and interdisciplinary perspectives provide strong support....The breadth of scholarship is impressive--and consistent with Spring's other texts.
Brian Morgan
York University

What I like most is the clear definition of the terms/ideas that Spring uses as the basis for creating a new vision of education and for evaluating existing systems of schooling.

Joel Spring has long been a tireless and prolific student of education in the U.S. and, more recently, internationally. His credentials as an historian of education and student of education policy are impeccable and, as far as I'm concerned, not subject to legitimate challenge or diminution. As such, one does him no harm in judging the book Globalization and Educational Rights as not one of his best.

This is certainly an ambitious book, as is evident in the subtitle: "An Intercivilizational Analysis." Spring's objective is to identify specifically educational rights for all people. To accomplish this he proceeds from the reasonable assumption that, over time, there have been gradual exchanges among large but differing cultural systems concerning ideas, beliefs, and commitments that constitute the rights that should be granted to all human beings. In making his case, Spring uses China from Confucius to Mao Zedong and his successors; Islam from its founding to the present; the West, especially the United States and Western Europe since the crusades; and the long history of India, with particular concern for the development of Hinduism over many centuries.

One of the difficulties with Spring's book is immediately evident when we compare his four cases. Each presents us with an unfathomably enormous amount of information that might be collected not only over centuries but across millenia, and all have undergone dramatic changes during the vast and varying expanses of time that Spring includes. Besides, and most obviously, two, namely China and India, while internally heterogeneous, are identifiable nations, while the others, Islam and the West, are multinational entities with time-dependent borders and characterized by ceaseless internal flux.

I liked the book in general. It was good for class. I just wish it wasn't so negative of a book. Then again sometimes people need that in order to make a change. Amazon is a good place to get it if you need it for class.

I ordered it to go with a diversity class I was taking in college. It has lots of information but I probably won't use it after the class.
