Education: Culture, Economy, and Society is a book for everyone concerned with the social study of education: students studying the sociology of education, foundations of education, educational policy, and other related courses. It aims to establish the social study of education at the centre stage of political and sociological debate about post-industrial societies. In examining major changes which have taken place in the late twentieth century, it gives students a comprehensive introduction to both the nature of these changes and to their interpretation in relation to long-standing debates within education, sociology, and cultural studies. The extensive editorial introduction outlines the major theoretical approaches within the sociology of education, assesses their contribution to an adequate understanding of the changing educational context, and sets out the key issues and areas for future research. The 52 papers in this wide-ranging thematic reader bring together the most powerful work in education into an international dialogue which is sure to become a classic text.

Halsey and his co-editors describe this book as a third attempt to review the scope and trends of sociological writing on education. The book is divided into six parts, on themes including Education, the Global Economy and the Labour Market; Politics, Markets and School Effectiveness; and Knowledge, Curriculum and Cultural Politics. In short, there isn't much that is not covered./L.A. Duhs The University of Queensland/ International Journal of Social Economics 25,10 1998.

The main strength lies in the coverage of key issues, students will be able to use this text as their baisc reader for the course. It has a well-balanced mixture of older and more recent sources which means it will not date too quickly. I shall be strongly recommending it for purchase. * Lyn Bryant, University of Plymouth *
