The Annual Review of Comparative and International Education (ARCIE) is a forum for stakeholders and scholars to examine current trends and identify future directions in comparative and international education. The goal of the ARCIE volume is to examine current perspectives and future directions for the field using several essays as a context for discussion and analysis. Contributed chapters begin by addressing the questions and themes discussed in these essays which include: the use of new conceptual or methodological frameworks; the connection between research and practice; the emergence of new area studies, and diversification of the field to include human rights, multicultural and social education, environmental education, education for sustainable development, arts education, and special education, among others. The format of ARCIE pieces entails an analytic overview of published work in the field, noting key issues and future directions. It provides an important and well-cited international forum for the discussion of matters of comparative and international education theory, policy and practice.

International Perspectives on Education draws on the knowledge and experience of a distinguished team of international educationists, including Howard Gardner and Kristján Kristjánsson. Each chapter can be accessed as a resource on a specific topic, but the chapters are also grouped into three sections to provide an invaluable source of thinking and knowledge from leading thinkers and practitioners in their fields: Perspectives on Education; Supporting the Learning Process; and Teachers and Professional Development.

The prevailing view by all contributors is that the learning experience and environment should not only be stimulating and intellectually interesting, but also socially inclusive and fulfilling, with a need to develop learners' potential and personality around a set of good values. All this lies at the heart of quality education, and stimulates a new debate in support of the re-humanisation of education, rather than the de-humanisation that we have seen in recent times with attempts to tie its products and processes more closely with models generated in the world of commerce.

This collection reflects the development of education within an international context of trends, good practices and experience. It is aimed at those who have an interest in education as an academic area of study (undergraduate students and lecturers, higher degree students and those involved in, or training for, the teaching profession), and those who are concerned with the management and governance of education.
