The growing phenomenon of cross-border higher education (CBHE) will not help developing countries unless it is accessible, available, affordable, relevant and of acceptable quality. Foreign Providers in the Caribbean: Pillagers or Preceptors? focuses on the trends of CBHE in the Caribbean, which has its own unique characteristics. Following a Preface (Sir John Daniel), Contributor information, and Prologue (Stewart Marshall and Christine Marrett), the book includes nine case studies: (1) External Tertiary Education Providers in Barbados (Michael L. Thomas); (2) External Tertiary Education Providers in Belize (Maria Isabel Tun); (3) External Tertiary Education Providers in the British Virgin Islands (Marcia Potter); (4) External Tertiary Education Providers in the Cayman Islands (Deborah Ann Chambers); (5) External Tertiary Education Providers in Jamaica (Nancy A. George); (6) External Tertiary Education Providers in Trinidad and Tobago (Karen Rosemin and Lystra Sampson-Ovid with Aaron Anthony O'Neal and Lynne Mohammed); (7) External Tertiary Education Providers in the Turks and Caicos Islands (Carlton Mills); (8) Maximising the Benefits of an In-country Foreign Tertiary Education Provider: The School for Field Studies, the Turks and Caicos Islands (David T. Wilson and Carlton Mills); and (9) External Provision of Tertiary Education Through Institutional Collaboration in Distance Education in the Commonwealth Caribbean (Christine Marrett.) The book concludes with an Epilogue The Global and the Local (Stewart Marshall.) (Chapters are noted and referenced individually. Contains 5 figures and 27 tables.).
