  • Collegeby Andrew Delbanco; Andrew Delbanco

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 17.95

    As the commercialization of American higher education accelerates, more and more students are coming to college with the narrow aim of obtaining a preprofessional credential.

  • Gender Pedagogyby Emily F. Henderson

    Palgrave Macmillan 2014; US$ 45.00

    When addressed in its full reactive potential, gender has a tendency to unfix the reassuring certainties of education and academia. Gender pedagogy unfolds as an account of teaching gender learning that is rooted in Derrida's concept of the 'trace', reflecting the unfixing properties of gender and even shaking up academic knowledge production. more...

He traces the ways a sociocultural view... more...

  • The Politics of Education Expansion and Inequalityby Karl Kitching

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 145.00

    The marketised and securitised shaping of formal education sites in terms of risk prevention strategies have transformed what it means to be a learner and a citizen. In this book, Karl Kitching explores racialised dimensions to suggest how individuals and collectives are increasingly made responsible for their own welfare as ?good? or ?bad? students,... more...

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 145.00

    Recent years have shown the growth of federal legislation and programs having a profound impact on educational policy and practice, and a decline in reliance on broadly based educational justifications.

    Taylor and Francis 2014; US$ 47.95
