Education is a field sometimes beset by theories-of-the-day and with easy panaceas that overpromise the degree to which they can alleviate pressing educational problems. The two-volume Encyclopedia of Educational Theory and Philosophy introduces readers to theories that have stood the test of time and those that have provided the historical foundation for the best of contemporary educational theory and practice. Drawing together a team of international scholars, this invaluable reference examines the global landscape of all the key theories and the theorists behind them and presents them in the context needed to understand their strengths and weaknesses. In addition to interpretations of long-established theories, this work offers essays on cutting-edge research and concise, to-the-point definitions of key concepts, ideas, schools, and figures.

Why is educational change becoming more complex? Are there patterns in this complexity? How may managers cope effectively with complex educational change? This book investigates initiatives to reorganise school systems, involving highly emotive closures and mergers. It reveals how reorganisation was a complex change to manage because it was large-scale, componential, systematic, differentially impacting and context dependent. These characteristics affected management tasks, generating ambiguity in the change process that limited managers' capacity to control it. The authors offer four management themes as realistic strategies for coping with complex educational change: *orchestration *flexible planning and coordination *culture building and communication *differentiated support Managing Complex Educational Change is essential reading for all concerned with educational change - managers in schools and colleges, students on advanced courses, trainers, local and regional administrators, academics and policy makers. The research has general implications for the theory and practice of managing complex change.

The challenge of recruiting women into majors and careers in information technology is internationally recognized. The economic implications for women are also significant if they are not prepared for a career in one of the fastest growing and financially rewarding fields. This book uncovers the factors that influence womens' interest in and choice of IT as a career field, and how this varies across cultures and regions. The results of the studies are both illuminating and prescriptive for designing and implementing sucessful programs that cross the secondary, post-secondary, and professional settings, and establishing an agenda of critical areas for future research about women and information technology.

Comparative studies receive relatively little attention in U.S. education. Comparative work done by people who are either international scholars or have spent extensive (and intensive) periods of time in international contexts rarely shows up on course syllabi or reading lists in most U.S. education courses. However, this volume is comprised of scholars at various phases of their careers -- early, mid, and late -- who have deep investments in issues of international and global education. U.S. students do not know very much about the countries of Africa because these countries cannot be understood outside of the history and foreign policies that implicate the United States. The same thing might be said of Latin America, the Caribbean, and increasingly Asia. The only way that broader and more complex perspectives of the post-colonial world can emerge are in the presence of post-colonial voices. Globalisation, for better or worse, is a part of our post-modern, postcolonial condition. Unless we do systematic study of the way global forces impact material realities and our symbol systems we cannot make sense of our world and our place in it. The responsibility for the study of the global, transnational, transcultural, and/or comparative does not reside merely on those we see as "other". However, their perspectives cannot be marginalised in the discourse. This collection contains a superb mixture of voices and perspectives from around the world. But, it also contains a wonderful homage to two scholars, B Robert Tabachnick and Robert Koehl whose work represent the leading edge of comparative education.
