Reviews

"Ball's use of Foucault as applied to specific instances of educational policy is a powerful model for scholars and students as it provides an approach through which to analyze and understand past and present educational policy. Summing Up: Reccommended."- J.A. Helfer, Knox College, for CHOICE, November 2013 "........what Ball has constructed here is valuable, partly because he brings his subject into relief personally, intellectually and methodologically; but also and more importantly because he goes beyond just analysing and applying Foucault and attempts to `do' Foucault. It is his use of genealogy and the distinct autobiographical slant which appears and reappears throughout that set this book apart, and make it needed." - Ben Knight, International Journal of Lifelong Education
