Politics, Policies and Pedagogies in Education : The selected works of Bob Lingard Hardback


In the World Library of Educationalists, international experts compile career long collections of what they judge to be their finest pieces of work - extracts from books, key articles, salient research findings, major theoretical and practical contributions - so the world can read them in a single manageable volume.

Readers will be able to follow the themes and strands and see how their work contributes to the development of the field. Bob Lingard has spent the last 30 years researching and writing in universities in Australia, England and Scotland about changing education policy issues.

His work is written from a sociological perspective and with a commitment to social justice.

He is the co-editor and co-author of 17 books and more than 100 journal articles and book chapters. In Politics, Policies and Pedagogies in Education, Bob Lingard provides critical sociological engagement with the politics of education.

The focus is education policy and the impact of globalization, including epistemological and methodological issues necessary for researching education policy today.

Topics analyzed include: educational restructuringnew accountabilities and testingmediatization of education policypolicy as numbersthe global policy field and policy borrowing pedagogies.

He has selected 12 of his key writings and in a critical introduction situates and contextualizes the work against key developments in the field and in the changing world.
