Fisher's book chronicles a bold experiment in which MIT partnered with the Singapore Ministry of Education to establish a new university. It offers valuable lessons about the prospects and perils of crossborder collaborations.
- Jason Tan, Associate Professor in Policy, Curriculum & Leadership at the National Institute of Education, Singapore

A rich, informative account of one of MIT's transnational (ad)ventures, Education Crossing Borders offers up a firstrate case study of higher education partnerships. While shedding light on key plans and policies, the author raises a number of complicating factors -- historical, political, cultural, social, institutional, academic, and personal -- germane to the benefits and risks, opportunities and pitfalls, obstacles and achievements, of MIT's bold global outreach.
- Philip Alexander, author of A Widening Sphere: Evolving Cultures at MIT
