    Chapter 1 is based upon the Karl Mannheim Memorial Lecture, which I delivered at the Institute of Education, University of London, in January 1997 on the fiftieth anniversary of Mannheim's death. Chapter 2 was originally given as a lecture at the Second International Conference of the Sociology of Education in Portugal at the University of the Algarve, Faro, Portugal, in September 1993. Chapter 3 is based on lectures given at the Havens Center, University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA in November 1996, updated for a presentation to an international symposium on ‘Futures of Education’ in Zurich, Switzerland in March 2000. Chapter 4 is based on a talk given at the Annual Conference of the Standing Committee for the Education and Training of Teachers in Rugby in November 1999. Chapter 5 is based on a lecture given at the National Taiwan Normal University in March 1995, while Chapter 6 was presented at the World Congress of Comparative Education Societies in Sydney, Australia in July 1996. Most of Chapter 7 was a lecture given at a Catholic Education Service conference on ‘Catholic Schools in Urban Poverty Areas’ at Swanwick, Derbyshire in July 1999 with some additional material from a paper presented at a seminar on ‘Education Policy and Social Class’ at King's College London in July 2000. Chapter 8 was originally delivered as a lecture at the University of Oxford in February 1998, but has been updated with material drawn from a talk to the Headstrong Club in Lewes in May 2001.

    Chapter 2 was co-authored by Peter Aggleton and Gabrielle Rowe (now Ivinson), and Chapters 3 and 6 were written with Sally Power, so I am most grateful for their permission to include these papers in this volume. I am also grateful to Peter Mortimore for allowing me to use those parts of Chapter 7 that are based on a pamphlet we wrote together in 1997. Some of the other chapters also draw heavily on work carried out with colleagues, notably Peter Aggleton, Michael Apple, Elizabeth Barrett, Len Barton, David Crook, Marny Dickson, Tony Edwards, John Furlong, Eva Gamarnikow, Sharon Gewirtz, David Halpin, Sheila Miles, Sally Power, Paul Tyrer, Caroline Whiting and Deborah Youdell. However, while my own understanding of the issues has benefited enormously from these collaborations, the responsibility for the particular formulations published here rests entirely with me.

    The Economic and Social Research Council provided support for some of the research upon which the book is based. I am also indebted to the University of Wisconsin-Madison, USA and the University of Canterbury, Christchurch, New Zealand, for visiting fellowships which enabled me to undertake research and work on some of the lectures that now form the chapters of this book.

    I would like to thank Marcia Beer for her help in preparing the manuscript.
