International Status Anxiety and Higher Education: The Soviet Legacy in China & Russia

Hong Cong: Springer, 2018.
Academic editor: A. Oleksiyenko, Q. Zha, I. Chirikov, J. Li.

This volume provides a critical perspective on the Soviet legacy of superpower competition in the higher education systems of China and Russia. The book examines the tensions among multi-level forces that strive to advance progressive university policies and practices on the one hand, and on the other hand work to restore old-style hyper-centralization and indoctrination. It tracks the de-Sovietization of higher education, which aimed to integrate Chinese and Russian universities into global higher education but resulted in inducing status anxiety in the global hierarchies of knowledge development.
