Bartlett and Burton's Introduction to Education Studies represents a fine piece of scholarship and research, a text both readable in its approach and stimulating in its presentation for the contemporary student of education. -- Daniel H. Jarvis In my opinion, the strengths of this text are many. First, it is very readable; the tone is engaging and encourages the reader to work through the whole text. Secondly, the fact that a companion website has been created to support the books is of particular significance. The third strength is the inclusion of reader reflexion boxes, containing questions or topics for consideration. Finally, a recommended reading list at the end of each chapter, identifying relevant additional reading on each of the topics, provides the student with a complete `learning package'. -- Moira Bailey * Scottish Educational Review * 'Highly readable and comprehensive introduction to education studies' - Robert Legg, Senior Lecturer, Westminster Institute of Education at Oxford Brookes University 'The authors have provided an essential companion to studies in Education. Importantly, it reinforces the neccessity of a multi-disciplinary approach to the understanding of contested educational ideas and practices in a contemporary context'- Dave Trotman, Newman University College Praise for the second edition: `The authors have provided an important resource for student study in education. Importantly, it reinforces the necessity of a multi-disciplinary approach to the understanding of contested educational process and practices in a contemporary context' - Dave Trotman, Escalate 'This is a good introductory text book which introduces students to essential concepts they will encounter in the study of education. Throughout, the book has useful sections for reflecting on learning' - Dr Claire Tupling, Department of Childhood Studies, Canterbury Christ Church University
