China's momentous educational transformation has not taken place without a thriving intellectual discourse. The aim of the series is to expose those in the world outside of China, particularly the English language audience, to the most influential books in the field of contemporary education. Each book has contributed to the richness, complexity and depth of intellectual discussion about Chinese education. The books in the series would include those of Cai Yuanpei, the first president of Peking University; Gu Mingyaun, a leading contemporary educational thinker; Pan Guangdan, a leading sociologist who influenced education developments; Pan Maoyuan, a prolific author on higher education developments, and others. These books are aimed at anyone who wants to understand the thinking behind and beyond the often used phrase "educational reform with Chinese characteristics."
