Project Description/Abstract

This research is a longitudinal study (20 years) of the evolution of higher education/curriculum in China’s urban and rural venues. Begun in 1985 and continuing through the Spring of 2005, this phase of the research plan requires interviewing, data collection and review in Beijing, Linfen, Xi’an, Nanjing and Shanghai. Writing has begun and will continue until January 2006. Utilizing the data gathered through the nineties and especially in 2001, 2003, 2004 and 2005, in addition to the data generated in my first book (now in its 1st international edition, Idea Press), I will describe, analyze and compare the Chinese rural/urban higher education system and curriculum from 1985 to 2005 (see annotated Table of Contents). Supporting this analysis is the importance of the “four modernizations” and China’s rapid rise as a “globalized” economic power. The competed work will go to CART and the publisher in early 2006.
