"Several universities throughout East Asia have been developing internationalization policies to meet the increasing demands of globalization. The editors initially viewed these policies as being more about "Westernization" and questioned how power and privilege are embedded within these efforts. However, we did not want to be completely skeptical of these globalization efforts. Therefore we set out to explore how globalization is impacting East Asian university systems, society, and culture. The volume investigates East Asian higher education systems in comparison and separate from Western-dominant thoughts, which can ultimately lead to innovative globalization theory and internationalization practice at the higher education level"--Provided by publisher.
