International Education: Past, Present, Problems and Prospects. Selected Readings to Supplement H. R. 14643. House Document Number 527.
Brademas, John; And Others
A selection of important readings from the existing literature in the field of international education is brought together in this volume, printed to serve as a guide for members of the House Committee on Education and Labor and the Congress in understanding the tasks for which the International Education Act of 1963, H. R. 14643, gives support. It is characterized as a comprehensive and substantive compilation of searching and instructive treatises on a broad spectrum of problems and issues in international education. In its consideration of the Act, the Task Force on International Education focused on the development of the capacity of our own institutions of higher education to reach and conduct research about foreign lands and world problems. The readings are organized under the following topic headings: higher education and world affairs; internationalizing the curriculum; educational exchanges; education for development; organizing for international education; and international education. A bibliography lists books, conference reports, papers, speeches, and journal articles in the categories of higher education and world affairs, curriculum educational exchanges, US oversea activities, cooperative educational efforts, and resource materials.
