Research output: Chapter in Book/Report/Conference proceedingChapter

Abstract

This chapter sets a framework for the whole book by providing an overview of the topic and a commentary on the ways in which the chapters which follow may be linked to the theme and to each other. The chapter is built around identification of diversity and commonality. On the one hand, the East Asian region contains countries with widely varying circumstances and political transitions; but on the other hand are a number of common pattern. Among the commonalities are colonial transitions, interrelationships between education and economic changes, and transitions involving international forces and the changing role of the state.
