'Andrew Peterson has written a truly excellent book grounded in a deep understanding of the field. His writing is accessible, intelligent, measured and level-headed and stands out for its clarity. His work is a significant contribution to the understanding of the relationship between contemporary civic republicans and civic educators. It is informative, inspiring and wise and it should be compulsory reading for all involved in education for citizenship'. - James Arthur, Head of the School of Education, University of Birmingham, UK; Editor of the British Journal of Educational Studies

'...I can wholeheartedly recommend his book to those interested in finding out more about modern republicamism. It would also be of benefit to those already interested in civic education because it parents a rich context (the republican perspective) in which the development of civic education makes sense.' - Geoffrey Hinchliffe, University of East Anglia, Journal of Philosophy of Education
