Description/Abstract

The Routledge International Encyclopedia of Education is a unique and major resource for the field of education. It is a comprehensive, single-volume work, arranged alphabetically, of around 400,000 words. The 600 entries range from definitions of educational concepts, terms and biographies of key educators to substantial, authoritative essays on major educational topics specially contributed by leading international researchers. The volume includes critical, and sometimes provocative, examinations of historical and contemporary themes, examinations of continuities, changes and emerging issues, and discussions of the educational traditions and features of major countries and continents. The work includes suggested items for further reading and a full index.

The encyclopedia has a distinguished international advisory board and contributors are drawn from from all over the globe, including Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, India, Iran, Israel, Japan, South Africa, the United Kingdom and the United States. It will be an invaluable work of reference for teachers, students and policy makers in education and related areas around the world.
