sons relating to cost, improved quality of institutions, and ease of entry. I especially liked the observation that an important “push factor” impacting study abroad is the need for students to obtain skills and knowledge that meet the standards of the fast-changing global marketplace. The authors quote from a 2010 Organisation for Economic Co-operation and Development (OECD) report, Education at a Glance, that “Globally oriented firms seek internationally competent workers who speak foreign languages and have the intercultural skills needed to successfully interact with international partners.” Based on my own research, this factor will only gain in importance as a raison d’etre for ambitious young people seeking a better life and a better career.

I’d like to conclude with a few observations the authors make about internationalization policies in China and India. While China now sends more students abroad for tertiary education than any other nation—510,000 in 2008—it also is increasing its share of inbound students. The government’s latest national educational plan is to have 500,000 international students enrolled by 2020 and become the world’s leading destination country. As for India, the nation has always sent large numbers of students abroad, while at the same time, it receives students from 195 countries! While it does have a vast higher education infrastructure, there are only a relatively few first-class universities. But, this will change given a new push by the

government to both improve the quality of higher education and also open up the prospect of interuniversity linkages and partnerships with foreign providers (if Parliament passes pending new legislation). A recent policy announced a goal to build 1,000 more universities and add 30 million more students by 2020. This volume is a very useful roadmap to the complexities of global student mobility and the pushes and pulls that impact development of national educational policies and practices. IE
