Summary

The dynamics of academic exchange are explored by a multidisciplinary group of scholars in this book. Contributors from ten countries examine such issues as undergraduate versus graduate study abroad and the purpose and effect of sending students to foreign countries. Drawing on their experiences as administrators and faculty in exchange programs, the authors discuss faculty exchange, collaborative research, and linkages across national boundaries. The relative advantages of academic exchange in different fields are examined, and cross-cultural perspectives from Asia, Europe, the Middle East, and Africa are compared. The consensus of the contributors is that universities are a vital means of breaking down the barriers of nationalism by promoting a constant and free exchange of scholarship.
