Item description for Comparative Education Research: Approaches and Methods (Cerc Studies in Comparative Education) by Mark Bray, Bob Adamson & Mark Mason...
Approaches and methods in comparative education research are of obvious importance, but do not always receive adequate attention. This book contributes new insights within the longstanding traditions of the field. A particular feature is the focus on different units of analysis. Individual chapters compare places, systems, times, cultures, values, policies, curricula, and other units. The chapters are contextualized within broader analytical frameworks which identify the purposes and strengths of the field. The book includes focus on intra-national as well as cross-national comparisons, and highlights the value of approaching themes from different angles. The book will be of great value not only to producers of comparative education research but also to consumers who wish to understand more thoroughly the parameters and value of the field. It will be a leading volume in comparative education research methodology.
