Education and Society by Rob Moore

Book Description

This new book is a lively and highly accessible introduction to the sociology of education. Written in a clear and comprehensible way, it introduces students to the key theoretical perspectives and conceptual frameworks in the sociology of education, and provides a guide to contemporary issues and current debates. The book reviews the ways in which sociology contributes to our understanding of the relationship between education and society. The sociology of education is treated in historical depth, dealing with the classic thinkers as well as with contemporary approaches and issues. In doing so, it critically engages with wider debates in social theory. There is an extensive treatment of Durkheim and of the work of Bourdieu and Bernstein, as well as discussion of post--modernism drawing upon recent ideas in epistemology and philosophy of science to address the question: What should we teach? The book covers the macro relationships between education and the economy and state and the micro processes of the classroom and school. A central concern is with inequalities of class, gender and race and their treatment by different sociological perspectives. Education and Society will be an essential text for students of sociology and education.
