The introduction starts by defining key terms and explaining the need for a book that addresses mentoring specifically within higher education. The introduction then positions the text within the cross-disciplinary field of mentoring, highlighting key links and themes across the chapters, particularly in terms of mentoring pedagogy within various higher education environments and the aspiration for social justice aims. In selecting the chapters for the book, the editors have drawn together chapters that frame issues around mentoring in higher education primarily within various settings that include the UK, Europe, South East Asia and America. Links are also made to the global context in terms of academic literature, philosophy of education and empirical settings, which will be carried through the various chapters. The introduction concludes with a brief outline of the various sections and chapters to guide readers.
