From Reference & Research Book News

Twenty-nine international academics, researchers, and consultants contribute 15 chapters providing an overview and comparative perspective on special education and inclusive schooling as conceptualized and practiced in the world today. Organized into six geographic sections — North America, Europe, Africa, the Middle East, South Asia, the Pacific Rim — the text analyzes changes and developments through national case studies, investigating special education practice within its social context and emphasizing the varied parameters, threads, and challenges involved in the current international movement toward inclusive schooling. The collection demonstrates that major disparities exist in fundamental approaches to and interpretation of special education and the inclusive agenda, which can be attributed to ideological differences and legal and structural dissentions.

Margret A. Winzer is a former professor in the Faculty of Education at the University of Lethbridge in Canada.

Kas Mazurek is a professor with the Faculty of Education at the University of Lethbridge in Alberta, Canada.
