Review:

"This important book comes just when it is most needed. With the number of students studying outside their home countries at a historic high and rising steeply, the phenomenon of global education now touches nearly every college and university. Exploring the international student experience through both a theoretical and a practical lens, Simon Marginson and Erlenawati Sawir offer insights that all academic leaders can apply to help achieve the fullest potential of higher education in the global era: rich and transformative connection between foreign and local students, their institutions, and the communities they share." - John Sexton, President, New York University

"Written in lucid English, Ideas for Intercultural Education is a unique combination of empirical investigation, theoretical inquiry and practical guidance. Treating international students as decent human beings, this rare, splendid volume goes beyond where other texts tend to stop to meet a variety of needs from researchers, teachers, students and parents." - Rui Yang, The University of Hong Kong

"Marginson and Sawir provide a compelling case as to why students have not, but should be, at the heart and center of intercultural education while universities are increasingly commercializing their international activities. This book is a must-read for all international educators and staff." - Jenny Lee, Associate Professor and Director of the Center for the Study of Higher Education, The University of Arizona
