"International education was once a discreet area that concerned few institutions and few individuals. Now it is a major industry that impacts thousands of institutions and millions of students. Kell and Vogl offer an excellent overview on a topic whose time has come. This is a text that many will want to read and learn from as they struggle to figure out a plan for their own institutions. A good read on an important topic."

"The OECD's Education at a Glance 2011 report has highlighted an interesting trend in so far as international student mobility is concerned. In absolute terms, the largest numbers of international students are from China, India and Korea. Asians account for 52% of all students studying abroad worldwide. This book, International Students in the Asia Pacific: Mobility, Risks and Global Optimism by Peter Kell and Gillian Vogl is an important book which analyses this important trend in the Asia Pacific region. This book makes a very significant contribution to our understanding of the dynamics of international student mobility in the Asia Pacific region, the risk associated with this mobility and its future scenario. Read together, the chapters which are well researched and written provide us with useful theoretical edge, convincing empirical evidence and important policy prescriptions."
