It was like nothing that had been seen before. The world had become used to weapons of all descriptions being used in the fight for ultimate power. But this time a real maniac was on the loose and he was using more modern equipment as he climbed the ladder on his way to becoming the only world leader. Technology had provided him the tool he needed to amass large sums of money which would buy him anything, or anyone he wanted. Nothing escaped his reach, thanks to computers. Law enforcement agencies around the globe weren't moving fast enough to shut down the operation. And the media didn't help, treating each tragedy as an individual story, encouraging one disaster after another, only to highlight the victories without making any connection, allowing him to celebrate his new-found power. As Ryan Droden sifts through the evidence before him, he uncovers more than just the identity of the world's latest power maniac. He also finds himself fighting the enemy within his own ranks. And when his search takes him to Asia, not once, but three times, he discovers a very dangerous connection - a connection which he has to break, before it is too late.

There is increasing interest in the Asian arena; both as a home for the delivery of international higher education and as a breeding ground for a new brand of sustainable domestic and international growth. Academics are increasingly turning to Asia and Asian Education in order to better understand and predict the emerging trends of global education and this book will serve to provide a forum for debate of this nature. The book provides an insight into the interplay of Asian and European education, identifies the key areas for further development and firmly grounds the approach as one of conversation and dialogue, rather than one-sided dictation. It also highlights the critical issues within the development of international education, discusses the value and challenges of existing TNE practices as a mechanism to respond to the emerging Asian needs and provides an insight into the future direction of education in the Asian century.

Globalization, migration, transnational movements and the development of the tiger economies of Asia have led education leaders and policy makers around the world but particularly in Australia, the USA, Canada, and New Zealand to view schools as key sites for developing ‘globally competent’, ‘Asia literate’ citizens who have the capabilities to live, work and interact with the peoples, cultures and societies of Asia. In what has been dubbed the ‘Asian Century’, nations are increasingly seeking to transform their schooling policies, curricula, and teaching workforces to engage with the growing influence of the peoples, cultures and societies both within and beyond Asia. This is the first book to subject to critical scrutiny and analysis the concepts, policies and practices of schooling involved in building intercultural relations with the diverse contemporary manifestations of ‘Asia’. It brings into dialogue scholars who are at the forefront of current thinking, policy and practice on Asia-related schooling, and contributes to a broader, international debate about the future shape of intercultural schooling in a global world. Asia Literate Schooling in the Asian Century offers chapters on: • Learning Asia: In search of a new narrative • Asia Literacy as Experiential Learning • Professional Standards and Ethics in Teaching Asia Literacy • The Feasibility of Implementing Cross-Curricular Studies of Asia • Deparochialising Education and the Asian Priority: A Curriculum (Re)Imagination This book will appeal to scholars and practitioners in Education, and is suitable as a reference for teacher education courses. It will also interest scholars specialising in Asian Studies.
