"All universities are members of one world community, yet too often the contacts between universities in different countries promote injurious imitation. Such imitation is particularly harmful to the 'development countries' where major differences in cultural background, present needs, and national resources [need] radical changes in educational technique. Yet these are the very places where colonial inheritance has often promoted unwise, sometimes ridiculous, imitations of overseas patterns. Southeast Asia is an excellent region in which to study these effects for within a comparitively small area four different Western university systems have been copied. This volume presents an analysis of the way in which the techniques designed to further learning in their countries of origin became distorted by the different conditions in Southeast Asia. An account is given of the development of the universities up to 1960, country by country, and of the challenges which they faced."; 8vo - over 7" - 9" tall
