The SAGE Handbook of International Higher Education examines the internationalization of higher education from a marginal to a core dimension of higher education worldwide. This mainstreaming of internationalization is a fascinating phenomenon: new concepts, programs, providers, and methods of delivery are emerging; impressive national and regional scholarship programs have been established; radical reforms have been undertaken to make higher education globally competitive; and mobility of students and scholars has increased around the world. This groundbreaking handbook serves as a guide to internationalization of higher education and offers new strategies for its further development and expansion in the years to come. With a decidedly global approach, this volume brings together leading experts from around the world to illustrate the increasing importance of internationalization. The text encompasses the diversity and breadth of internationalization of higher education in all its thematic facets and regional impacts.

Review:

"The Sage Handbook is an important tool for leaders across higher education. Its comprehensive look into the history of international education and insights into global opportunities for the 21st Century provides an important framework for the future of higher education."-- (05/25/2012)

"This essential handbook brings together experts from around the world in addressing the key issues of international higher education in the beginning of the 21st century. A very relevant publication indeed."-- (05/25/2012)

" Bridging theory and practice, this SAGE Handbook focuses on the key questions educators must address in international education. The reader will benefit from the broad coverage, bold predictions, and strategic insights presented in this encyclopedic survey of the internationalization of higher education."-- (05/25/2012)

"The global expansion of higher education capacity and quality offers both challenge and opportunity for higher education. This timely book should prompt the kind of strategic and comprehensive thinking needed to expand internationalization of higher education institutions and widen global opportunities for students and other higher education customers."-- (05/25/2012)

"This handbook gives a very comprehensive picture of international higher education from multiple perspectives and provides a roadmap for the future - a must read book for all involved in international higher education!"--Gudrun Paulsdottir (05/25/2012)

"This is one of the most comprehensive publications on Higher Education Internationalization. It will not only inform but will also educate Higher Education practitioners globally at all levels."-- (05/25/2012)

"The editors are to be congratulated for putting together such an impressive collection of chapters that help define the field ...If there were a "Who's Who in International Education," the editors and contributors would be prominently featured in it because they are serious scholars with distinguished professional records. This handbook goes a long way to explain and interpret this growing field not only to (those outside the field), but perhaps - unexpectedly - to international education professionals themselves....It is especially good to see the handbook reflecting a variety of cultural and national perspectives by including prominent educators and scholars from a variety of countries. (This handbook is an)... extraordinary venture that will raise the bar of competencies and knowledge of the field."-- (05/25/2012)
