Our Book Review page offers a growing collection that examines how academia addresses the changing landscape of higher education around the world.
We publish reviews of academic books related to national and international education policies and systems. We also publish reviews on books related to pedagogy. We have a particular focus on higher education and teaching in difficult situations but welcome reviews on any title related to our mission of improving higher education.
We welcome new contributors and encourage those interested to get in touch with us through the contact us page or by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.
