In their new book, Ogden, Streitwieser, and Van Mol (2021) create an accessible and succinct collection of some of the most salient areas of research in education abroad (p. 4). Authors from many countries contributed to each chapter, creating a five-part book that is a well-organized synthesis of the present-day field. Education Abroad: Bridging Scholarship and Practice is a welcome addition to the field and would be an excellent read for both novice and experienced scholars, as well as practitioners working at all levels. Each chapter examines key issues in education abroad and includes a history of the topic as well as possible directions for further research, guiding audiences at all levels to further exploration.
