'Globalization' and 'nation' provide perhaps the most significant contexts, concepts and processes that inform educational thinking and practice today. In this book a team of authors from around the world have written collaboratively about key issues regarding education about and for the nation, international community and global society. We explore individual country case studies - Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, the UK and USA - as well as discussing the nature of the transnational European Union. Social, political and cultural contexts relevant to education, internationalization and globalization within and between nations are discussed to identify what educating for the nation has meant in the last 50 years. This book asks what has been done, what is being done and what should be done to ensure that high quality education is developed. Copyright © 2016 The Editor(s) (if applicable) and The Author(s).
