Comparative Education has had a more than 110-year university
history. The essence
of Comparative Education can thoroughly be understood if we focus on its history and current existence
at universities world wide. This third expanded edition commences with Erwin H.
Epstein’s introductory chapter on ‘Crucial Benchmarks in the Professionalization
of Comparative Education’. The following six parts present 42 national and regional chapters depicting the evolution
and current state of Comparative Education at Universities in Europe, North America, Latin America, Asia, the Middle East
and Africa. The volume concludes with a mosaic-like
comparison of comparisons of the variegated picture of Comparative Education as an academic field.
