The Confucian Continuum provides a fairly complete look at the system of schooling used in Taiwan. It is ideal for courses in comparative education and as a resource for teachers seeking to explain Asian approaches to study and learning. The Chinese and foreign authors of the articles are resident scholars, members of the national or provincial academic hierarchies, or people, such as the editor, with a long-term interest in Chinese education. After an integrative opening chapter, the book includes separate chapters with elementary, secondary, post-secondary, vocational, and special education. There are also chapters dealing with the preparation of teachers and with moral and civic education.
