Originally published in 1979. Celebrating the tenth anniversary of the Journal of Curriculum Studies. This edited collection of ten significant papers, five of them specially commissioned to critically survey a decade of intellectual effort in selected areas of curriculum studies, not only identifies the emerging frontiers in an important field within the study of education but also provides an excellent set of teaching and learning resources in an area where the usual text book can be counter-productive.
