The British Journal of Sociology of Education has established itself as the leading discipline-based publication. This collection of selected articles published since the first issue provides the reader with an informed insight and understanding of the nature, range and value of sociological thinking, its development over the last twenty-five years as well as the analysis of the relationship between society and education.

Divided into four sections, the book covers:

social theory and education social inequality and education sociology of institutions, curriculum and pedagogy research practices in the sociology of education.

The intention of this form of organisation is to provide the reader with an awareness and understanding of multiple perspectives within the discipline as well as key conceptual, theoretical and empirical material, including a wealth of insights, ideas and questions. The editor’s specially written introduction to each section contextualises the selection and introduces readers to the main issues and current thinking in the field.
