118 indexed pages. Since World War ll Australia has played an increasing role in the education of Asian students, particularly those from Southeast Asia. More than 10,000 are in educational institutions at all levels and great emphasis is placed .on the importance of this aspect of government foreign policy in the overall picture of aid to developing countries. But what is being achieved? Obviously it is relevant to discover whether the time and money spent is being wasted or not, and whether all these young Asian returnees have any real opportunity to influence the changing patterns of their homeland. This book explores the influence that graduates, particularly from Australia, are exerting on the economic growth of three very different areas: the sophisticated, commercial city of Singapore; Malaysia with its industrializing towns and rural hinterland; and Sarawak, Sabah, and Brunei which are in the early stages of development. It looks also at the impact of the returnees in terms of their cultural background, traditional roles, opportunities for leadership, and abilities and inclinations, It makes some critical comments on the future of this form of cross-cultural training and the role which the industrialized nations must play if future educational aid to underdeveloped countries is to live up to the claims of the donors.
