This book was published in 2003. Certain social and cultural changes have problematized many of the assumptions that underpinned educational thinking in the 20th century. These can be grouped under three broad headings: individualization, globalization and the ecological challenge. Each of these has potentially profound implications for education that have been little explored. Rising to the challenge, this volume examines individualization in relation to changing attitudes to childhood and the positioning and identity development of students within educational "markets". It discusses globalization from several crucial perspectives, including the reduced sovereignty of the nation state and the problematizing of notions of distance and proximity. The ever-increasing environmental crisis is considered in terms of the possibilities for education for sustainable development.
