"This is by far the best account of the social shapes of privatisation that we have. Abounding in brilliant insights and startling detail, it maps a new landscape of education. It will have a decisive influence on educational and policy sociology." --Ken Jones, Goldsmiths, University of London. "This is a sumptuous book: rich in detail and scholarly in conceptualisation. Ball and Junemann have undertaken a forensic analysis of actor interactions and so made the business of philanthropy transparent and intelligible. Living within, and so far surviving, ongoing reform experiments is exhausting, but these authors help make sense of unfolding and complex processes through their political science knowledge and expertise." --Helen Gunter, University of Manchester
