    I am new to the field of Education and international development and I came across the book as I was trying to figure this field out and learn of it and I found this book really informative. Because it is of the academic nature of books, it is very clear and detailed and diverse in its approach and coverage of subjects. I highly recommend it to anyone who is new to this field who wants to know how NGOs in education work and operate and what are the challenges they face in the field when it comes I am new to the field of Education and international development and I came across the book as I was trying to figure this field out and learn of it and I found this book really informative.

I highly recommend it to anyone who is new to this field who wants to know how NGOs in education work and operate and what are the challenges they face in the field when it comes to nations, languages, policies, and theories of education. I have skipped a couple of chapters as I was not interested in the subjects of the chapters but nonetheless, I will come back to those chapters again as I believe why will be of great benefit in the future.

    I read an excerpt of this book for my comparative education class. I can't say it was particularly interesting or entertaining but I did fill up a page of notes on it!

    Kind of a slog to get through. However, this book is filled with excellent information, tons of sources, and provides an excellent primer on Education as it pertains to international development.
