As schooling has become progressively marketized, the place and position of learning and curriculum has been transformed. New vantage points are required to understand what is happening in these rapidly changing times. By studying life histories and life politics we can gain insights into the relationship between peoples' private missions and meanings, and their public tasks and targets. For the last thirty years Professor Ivor Goodson has been researching, thinking and writing about some of the key and enduring issues in education, contributing over forty books and six hundred articles to the field. This single volume presents twenty of his key pieces in one place for the first time. Goodson opens with an autobiographical introduction to a range of curriculum studies which pioneered a new way of studying schooling, and he contextualizes his selection within the development of the field. Chapters in this prestigious book cover: - curriculum history and policy - classroom pedagogy and strategies for professional development - life history, narrative and educational change.
