This volume sets out to discover what kind of curriculum is needed in the 21st century. It is widely recognized that the curriculum must be reconsidered, and this text seeks to counter the incoherence and fragmentation of much curriculum thinking. It draws upon theory and research from social science, psychology, philosophy and politics. The new "curriculum for life" focusses on themes like social development, thinknig skills, parenting, citizenship and work-related learning.

"...a quality and 'mould-breaking' book which develops a coherent, continuous, authoritative argument, and expresses, with sustained and impressive clarity, the moral-political perspective that JohnQuicke has adopted ... There are few authors who could achieve the integrated reach that is achieved in this book." - Professor Andrew Pollard, University of Bristol
