′The authors offer a rigorous and systematic analysis based on careful definition, illustration and discussion which demonstrates the importance of understanding culture, leadership and their interaction in different contexts: in doing so they provide a powerful antidote to the simplistic export of ideas and lay foundations for a more sophisticated conceptual framework for the study of educational leadership′ - John West-Burnham, International Leadership Centre, University of Hull

This key text in educational leadership focuses on the significance of the context and culture of schools. The book addresses the growing recognition of cultural differences between societies and the resultant differences in schooling. It also deals with vital issues relating to multicultural education and the leadership of multicultural schools. Drawing on their first-hand experience, the authors explore the differences evident in classroom teaching and learning, as well as organizational, leadership and management aspects of schools. They show how such differences can make over-reliance on Anglo-American approaches misleading, ineffective and restrictive.

Key features of the book include:

- a methodology to support the emerging field of international and comparative educational leadership and management

- in-depth comparative analysis of Anglo-American and Asian schooling and educational management

- the leadership of multi-cultural schools

This book is essential reading for professionals and students of educational leadership and management, as well as administrators.
