'Bringing Knowledge Back In provides a much-needed challenge to the pessimism of the postmodernists, to the relativism of the constructivists, and to those critical theorists who regard emancipation as but a consequence of having been exposed to emancipatory critiques...[Young] makes a very compelling case for social realism, and brings together in a most original manner a range of important epistemological and sociological perspectives, and the book relates them to a commendably wide range of current policy and practice.' - British Journal of Sociology of Education
