Abstract: In this introduction to the volume 'Education in Bhutan: Culture, Schooling, and Gross National Happiness' we set out the purpose of the book and also describe the book's intended audience. We then discuss three specific stances on language and convention that we have adopted. Next, we discuss the three themes of this volume, each of which informs its chapters. Finally we indicate the simple structure of the book and describe briefly the contents of each chapter.
