In addressing an extensive range of fundamental issues and problems surrounding transnational education, including for example English language policy and practice, and understandings and implications of `Asian' versus `Western' discourses, this book is a valuable resource for anyone interested in the internationalisation of higher education globally. Emeritus Professor Anne Chapman, The University of Western Australia
In a context where many Asian parents and students aspire to a 'Western' education, and American universities and schools are caught up in a terminal case of 'Asia-envy' - this is a timely and important work. Phan Le Ha makes it impossible for any of us to take the official marketing and spin about the value of East/West, Asia/America educational exchange at face value. Emeritus Professor Allan Luke, Queensland University of Technology
