In this insightful text, the authors argue for a broad definition of inclusion, not limited to those with learning difficulties or impairment.

This new and revised edition includes an increased focus on: @! inclusion as a political issue @! social class @! poverty @! children's rights @! the inclusion of gay and lesbian parents and staff @! practical activities including workshops and role-plays @! different policies around the UK This text is essential for all Early Years students, practitioners and researchers who want to become familiar with current research into inclusion and to develop ways of drawing on such studies to inform and develop their own inclusive practices. Cathy Nutbrown is Professor of Education and Director for Research at the University of Sheffield. Peter Clough is Honorary Professor of Education at the University of Sheffield Frances Atherton is Head of Department of Early Childhood Studies, at the University of Chester.
