About the Author

Phan Le-Ha is with the College of Education at The University of Hawai'i at Manoa. She also holds an adjunct appointment in the Faculty of Education, Monash University, Australia.


In addressing an extensive range of fundamental issues and problems surrounding transnational education, including for example English language policy and practice, and understandings and implications of 'Asian' versus 'Western' discourses, this book is a valuable resource for anyone interested in the internationalisation of higher education globally. Emeritus Professor Anne Chapman, The University of Western Australia

In a context where many Asian parents and students aspire to a 'Western' education, and American universities and schools are caught up in a terminal case of 'Asia-envy' - this is a timely and important work. Phan Le Ha makes it impossible for any of us to take the official marketing and spin about the value of East/West, Asia/America educational exchange at face value. Emeritus Professor Allan Luke, Queensland University of Technology
