Despite international congresses and international journals, anthropologies of education differ significantly around the world. Linguistic barriers constrain the flow of ideas, which results in a vast amount of research on educational anthropology that is not published in English or is difficult for international readers to find. This volume responds to the call to attend to educational research outside the United States and to break out of metropolitan provincialism.A" A guide to the anthropologies and ethnographies of learning and schooling published in German, French, Spanish, Portuguese, Italian, Slavic languages, Japanese, and in English as a second language, it shows how scholars in Latin America, Japan, and elsewhere adapt European and American and other approaches to create new traditions. As the contributors show, educators draw on different foundational research and different theoretical discussions. Thus, this global survey raises new questions and casts a new light on what has become a too-familiar discipline in the United States.

This issue of "New Directions for Evaluation" focuses on evaluation in complex organizations. The themes that are examined the mainstreaming of evaluation within organizations, the growth of evaluation capacity, and the use of evaluation to promote organizational learning are relevant for evaluators who operate in environments marked by multiple organizational levels, varied funding streams, divergent purposes for evaluative information, and numerous stakeholders and organizational partners. The national Cooperative Extension System serves as a recurring case study that links the topics together. Cooperative Extension is a system of institutions that includes every state's land-grant universities, the U.S. Department of Agriculture, and local country governments. The linkages across professional communities and distinct institutions create a highly complex environment, presenting numerous challenges for evaluators working with community-based programs. Extension's experiences contribute to a rapidly evolving knowledge base about effective evaluation practice across a variety of organizational settings. This is the 120th volume of the Jossey-Bass quarterly thematic journal "New Directions for Evaluation", an official publication of the American Evaluation Association. The journal publishes empirical, methodological, and theoretical works on all aspects of evaluation. Each issue is devoted to a single topic, with contributions solicited, organized, reviewed, and edited by a guest editor or editors. Issues may take any of several forms, such as a series of related chapters, a debate, or a long article followed by brief critical commentaries.

The student credit hour (SCH) is truly the coin of the realm within the U.S. system of higher education. Initially designed to translate high school course work, it now measures everything from student learning to faculty workload. It shapes how time is used, and how enrollments are calculated, and underpins cost and performance measures. This American invention is one of the features that knit together our otherwise disparate system of higher education. Yet, the rationale for the metric has long since gone unexamined, and the measure itself may be perpetuating bad habits that get in the way of institutional change in higher education. The chapters in this book deconstruct the SCH credit hour and how it has come to be used in American higher education, to examine whether it has become an obstacle to needed change. It is a fascinating journey into the sociological evolution of the current organization and governance of American higher education. This is the 122nd issue of the quarterly journal "New Directions for Higher Education".
