MEDIA REVIEWS
'A new publication by David Hicks is always welcome. For more than two decades, Hicks has consistently produced eminently readable accounts of research, and teaching resources grounded in research and practical wisdom ... These qualities are as evident in Lessons for the Future as they are in his previous publications.' - Noel Gough, Australian Journal of Environmental Education

'Admirable and carefully researched academic study of "the missing dimension in education" ... By introducing the personal into his writing this becomes a moving and compelling search "to make the world a better place", from his earliest days working as a geography teacher, to those as a university professor.' - John Abbott, Cambridge Journal of Education
