This book critically examines the overall interplay between globalisation, social inequality and education. It explores conceptual frameworks and methodological approaches applicable in the research covering the State, globalisation, social stratification and education. The book, constructed against this pervasive anti-dialogical backdrop, aims to widen, deepen, and in some cases open, discourse related to globalisation, and new dimensions of social inequality in the global culture.

From the reviews:"The volume edited by Joseph Zajda, Karen Biraimah, and william Gaudelli offers 11 chapters that deal with the issue extremely critically. The book aims at discussing the factors determining social inequality in education in the context of global culture. ... It is fruitful because they show that the assumed direct relationship between cultural capital and school performance ... . offer valuable contributions to the subject of inequality in education." (Marcelo Caruso, Comparative Education Review, August, 2010)
