The field of special educational needs and inclusive education is not only of enormous importance to the study of education as a whole, it also constitutes a site of major debate.

In all of these paradigm clashes, countries are at different stages in reaching settlements, These difficulties reflect a range of factors, including intellectual traditions, cultural values, economic circumstances, and demography.
The articles assembled in this collection provide a global perspective on these debates. The collection as a whole demonstrates how the fields of special education and inclusive education have evolved philosophically and technically over the past 30 years, and widely depicts the contemporary state of approaches to educating students with special education needs.
The set includes an index and new introductions by the editor to each of the volumes.
