- Publisher's Summary
- Asia is rapidly developing a wide variety of regional organizations and interactive patterns, reflecting in large part its increasing role in the global economic and political engagements. Higher Education constitutes a distinct sphere of activity within this overall pattern of regionalization, being the site of a wide range of organizational efforts to promote this outcome. Within this overall pattern, however, one can observe important differences in how patterns of national development persist in some instances and are overcome in others by the forces propelling regionalization. This volume seeks to provide a useful conceptual structure for description and analysis of these phenomena, illustrated by insightful case studies of the role being performed in this overall regionalization by individual countries.
