Chinese Research Perspectives on Education is the new generation of
The Chinese Academy of Social Sciences Yearbooks: Educational Development. As with the CASS Yearbooks, the original versions of these volumes are published in China by Social Sciences Academic Press (SSAP) and are edited principally by leading researchers from CASS and other top research institutions and universities. The
Chinese Research Perspectives volumes will no longer be strictly organized on an annual basis. Rather, the selection of contributions will cover developments in China of particular interest to a Western (non-Chinese speaking) audience and will occasionally differ from the Chinese-language yearbooks. The selection of contributions for the English-language series and the translations of those volumes are supervised by Western editorial boards. The volumes included in this subseries on Education will continue to provide Western readers with discussions and critical analyses on developments, challenges, and crises in Chinese education. This sub-series is essential reading for anyone who wants to understand the perspective of China’s most critical scholars about the most pressing challenges facing educational development in China.
