    A new title from Routledge’s Major Themes in Education series, Sociology of Education II is a four-volume anthology of the very best scholarship. It is an essential successor to Sociology of Education (2000), also edited by Stephen J. Ball.

    Sociology of Education (2000) was the first comprehensive compendium of the field’s canonical and cutting-edge research, and this new collection now takes full account of the numerous important developments that have taken place since its appearance. Moreover, Sociology of Education II also includes coverage of many new areas and topics without the scope of the first collection.

    With a full index, together with a comprehensive introduction, newly written by the learned editor, which places the collected material in its historical and intellectual context, Sociology of Education II is an indispensable work of reference.
