"Postmodernism and Education" responds to the interest in postmodernism as a way of understanding social, cultural and economic trends. Robin Usher and Richard Edwards explore the impact which postmodernism has had upon the theory and practice of education, using a broad analysis of postmodernism and an in-depth introduction to key writers in the field, including Lacan, Derrida, Foucault and Lyotard. In examining the impact which this thinking has had upon contemporary theory and practice of education, Usher and Edwards concentrate particularly upon how postmodernist ideas challenge existing concepts, structures and hierarchies.

Industry Reviews

""Postmodernism and Education is a valuable book that needs to be vigorously engaged by educationalists and others wishing to rethink the contemporary crisis in education. An excellent introduction to postmodern social theory and its implications for pedagogy, educational policy and social transformation." -Peter McLaren, University of California at Los Angeles
