"An Introduction to the Study of Education" considers the nature, aims and purposes of education. It introduces the new student of Education Studies, and related courses, to the key perspectives and contexts of education in order to prepare them for further study in the field. This book is an accessible, introductory course companion for Education Studies. Boxed examples and case studies are provided where appropriate, to enable the student learner to contextualise the introductory theory that is presented. The authors also introduce methods of autobiography through which students will be challenged to explore and contextualise their own educational journey in order to make sense of education in the past, present and future.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'I've read a good many introductions to studying education but this one has already become a favourite. It's firmly situated in relevant historical and social contexts and is a lively, engaging read. The Study of Education An Introduction explains theory, illustrates with practice and encourages analysis and reflection. It will be welcomed by students who like to be well-informed, and by tutors wanting to encourage their students to adopt a thoughtful approach.'
Carrie Winstanley, Principal Lecturer in Education, Roehampton University, UK
'This text provides the reader with a solid introduction to a range of educational concepts.'
James Arthur, Editor of the British Journal of Educational Studies and Head of School and Professor of Education and Civic Engagement, University of Birmingham, UK
