Pickus, David – Frontiers of Education in China, 2016
This article argues that ideas from the ancient past supply insight about the future of Chinese universities.

Li, Aisi – Frontiers of Education in China, 2014
The foundation of Shanxi University is a prime example of the collaborative efforts in higher education between the Chinese and British in late Qing China (1842-1912). Both sides made compromises, with the Chinese adapting their ideas of educational sovereignty, and the British agreeing to work under the supervision of the local government. Such a…

Law, Wing-Wah – Frontiers of Education in China, 2013
Since the early 20th century, numerous scholars have proposed theories and models describing, interpreting, and suggesting the development paths countries have taken or should take.
