Education is seen as central to economic competitiveness, the reduction of poverty and inequality, and environmental sustainability.
The editors have selected key writings that examine the social and economic limits- and possibilities of-education in addressing these fundamental problems.
This new reader establishes the field of sociology of education with a particular focus on papers that analyse the nature and extent of globalization in education.
A general introduction presents the key concepts in the sociology of education, and outlines the major theories and debates, especially in relation to globalization.
Each section is accompanied by a part opener explaining and contextualizing the readings within a larger educational and sociological context.
