Bringing Knowledge Back in by Michael Young

Book Description

'This book tackles some of the most important educational questions of the day...It is rare to find a book on education which is theoretically sophisticated and practically relevant: this book is.' From the Foreword by Hugh Lauder What is it in the twenty-first century that we want young people, and adults returning to study, to know? What is it about the kind of knowledge that people can acquire at school, college or university that distinguishes it from the knowledge that people acquire in their everyday lives everyday lives, at work, and in their families? Bringing Knowledge Back In draws on recent developments in the sociology of knowledge to propose answers to these key, but often overlooked, educational questions. Michael Young traces the changes in his own thinking about the question of knowledge in education since his earlier books Knowledge and Control and The Curriculum of the Future. He argues for the continuing relevance of the writings of Durkheim and Vygotsky and the unique importance of Basil Bernstein's often under-appreciated work. He illustrates the importance of questions about knowledge by investigating the dilemmas faced by researchers and policy makers in a range of fields. He also considers the broader issue of the role of sociologists in relation to educational policy in the context of increasingly interventionist governments. In so doing, the book: * provides conceptual tools for people to think and debate about knowledge and education in new ways * provides clear expositions of difficult ideas at the interface of epistemology and the sociology of knowledge * makes explicit links between theoretical issues and practical /policy questions * offers a clear focus for the future development of the sociology of education as a key field within educational studies. This compelling and provocative book will be essential reading for anyone involved in research and debates about the curriculum as well as those with a specific interest in the sociology of education.

Postcards of the Army Service Corps 1902 - 1918 by Michael Young Postcards of the Army Service Corps 1902 - 1918, Hardback (September 2016)

Superb and complete collection of contemporary regimental postcards and illustrations.

King James and the History of Homosexuality by Michael Young King James and the History of Homosexuality, Hardback (September 2016)

James VI & I had a series of notorious male favourites. These affairs were almost certainly sexual. They diminished the majesty of the monarchy and raised the spectre of a sodomitical court and effeminized nation. It is a story of political intrigue coloured by sodomy, pederasty, and gender instability as backdrop to the English Civil War.
