Abstract or Description

This volume brings together world-leading researchers to discuss some of the histories and traditions that have inspired innovation in thinking and writing about policy making and policy worlds in the field of education. Through a focus on post-positivist epistemologies and anti-foundationalist philosophies, this volume documents some of the most recent theoretical and empirical developments in the education sub-field of ‘policy sociology’, also known as ‘sociology of education policy’ or ‘critical policy sociology’. The result is a comprehensive text and navigational tool for studying the application and merit of poststructuralist and social constructivist approaches to education policy scholarship.
