Reviews

'A book not to be missed' - History of Education Review

'This collection with its emphasis on individuals and their relationship to social context and to wider and political and economic forces…should give rise to an educational discourse which is informed, rational, atheoretical, liberal, evidentially-based, anti-utopian, careful and tentative' - History of Education Society Bulletin

'quite remarkable essays' - Paedagogica Historia
