American Universities in China: Lessons from Japan discusses the aspirations and operations of American universities in China through the lens of previous American universities' expansion efforts in Japan. It provides an in-depth explanation of the factors that contributed to the rise and decline of American universities in Japan in order to examine and predict the sustainability of American universities in China today. Through a review of historical documents, interviews with stakeholders in Japan and China, and an analysis of the cultural contexts of both the Japanese and Chinese higher education systems and the position of American universities within these environments, this book seeks to address the potential success or repeated failure of the American university abroad.
