This unique handbook offers an analytical review of the education systems of all European countries, following common analytical guidelines, and highlighting the paradox that education simultaneously pursues a universal value as well as a national character. Coverage includes international student performance studies, and a comparison of education dynamics in Eastern "new Europe" with "older" western EU members. The book provides a differentiated analytical data base, and offers suggestions for further research.
Education is a paradoxical phenomenon. On the one hand it is universal, as since the period of Enlightenment, it has been declared universal good for everybody. Mo- over, we learnt by historical research following the ideas of world system theory, that since this time as far as its main structures are concerned (compulsory state education given by professional teachers in classrooms…) it took even universal traits. However, on the other hand, the fact, that education became state education – organised or at least controlled by the state – was the beginning of another tradition line: education in the form of state organised educational institutions became a means of creating national identity. Universal inclusion as for the light of reason, shining for everybody is opposed to more or less nationalist exclusion (of all the others) shaping the feature of a particular nation state, with a particular educational system. This fundamental dialectical tension between the universal and the particular, was one to the important motives to make this handbook. One of the central issues of the country studies is precisely to display the relationship between universal v- ues and the search for national identity. Another motive is given by the European dimension of the handbook.

This book is the first to present an analytical description of the education systems of all European countries, following common guidelines. These conceptual guidelines consider various criteria concerning presumptions as to the quality of a good education system. One of the book’s central aims is to explore the paradoxical character of education, i.e. the relationship between universal values and the search for a national identity. It looks at the dynamics of the developments in the ‘new’ Eastern European countries compared to those of ‘older’ Western European countries. It then goes on to discover a common pattern of European education and compares it to that of education systems outside Europe, making it relevant reading to educators around the world. The handbook provides many suggestions for further study.
The only handbook covering all European countries
Combination of an analytical framework and substantial reliable information permitting comparisons of problems
Comparable statistical data
Emphasis on educational trends in the tension between continuity and change
The paradoxical character of education – which includes at the same time a universalistic value as well as a national property – makes the special interest of this handbook. The book gives – unique in its form – an analytical description of the education systems of all European countries, following common analytical guidelines. These conceptual guidelines try to consider a certain number of criteria concerning presumptions as to the quality of a good education system. The inclusiveness of the geographic field is of special interest for both European and Extra-European readers, showing the dynamics of the development in the "new Europe" in its Eastern part compared with the "older" western members of the European Union. Reliable knowledge about the differences of the national systems seems to be necessary to understand the common core and the common aim of European integration in the field of education.
