A volume in Chinese American Educational Research and Development Association Book Series Series Editors: Jinfa Cai, University of Delaware The book "Gifted Education in Asia: Problems and Prospects" is the first of its kind in terms of providing a critical assessment of the state of gifted education in nine representative countries or regions in Asia (Hong Kong, India, Japan, Mainland China, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, South Korea, Taiwan, and Turkey), five commentaries that put gifted education in a global context, and a conclusion chapter that provides a long term projection of future developments in gifted education in an information age and knowledge economy in the 21st century, and what challenges and opportunities lie ahead for Asian countries.
