In this two volume set, Bruner has selected and assembled his most important writings about education. Volume I spans the twenty years from 1957 to 1978 and Volume II covers 1979 to 2006. Volume I starts with a specially written introduction by Bruner, in which he gives an overview of the 1957-1978 years and contextualises his selection of papers. The articles and chapters then reveal the thinking, the concepts and the empirical research of that time that have made Bruner one of the most respected and cited educational authorities of our time.

Readers will be able to follow themes and strands of their work and see their contribution to the development of a field, as well as the development of the field itself. Jerome S. Bruner is one of the most distinguished and influential psychologists of his generation. His theories about cognitive development dominate psychology around the world today, but it is the field of education that his influence has been especially felt. In this two volume collection, Bruner has selected and assembled his most important writing about education. Volume 1 spans the 20 years from 1957 to 1978. Volume 2 takes us from 1979 to 2006. Each volume starts with a specially written Introduction by Bruner, in which he gives us an overview of his career and contextualizes his selection of papers. The articles and chapters that follow reveal the thinking, the concepts, and the empirical research that have made Bruner one of the most respected and cited educational authorities of our time. Through chapters from his best-selling books, his autobiography, and original journal articles, the reader can follow Bruner's thinking on questions such as, How do human beings presume to educate their young, we, the only species on earth that does so? Do our ways of "educating" conform to what we have been learning about learning during these past centuries? How can we adapt what we know in general about the nature of learning processes to fit modern conditions such as poverty, race discrimination, and urban life? Professor Bruner writes about these matters with the grace and passion for which he has become world famous. He discusses the scientific issues alongside the political, and "administrative" ones, and draws on his research findings and his active participation in projects on improving schooling in America, the UK, and Europe. This two-volume set is the ultimate guide to Jerome Bruner's most important and influential work, and is ideal for students and academics who want to be able to follow the development of his thinking over his incredible 70-year career.

Readers will be able to follow the themes and strands and see how their work contributes to the development of the field. This volume brings together the selected works of Fazal Rizvi. Born in India, Fazal Rizvi has lived and worked in a number of countries, including Australia, England and the United States. Most of his educational encounters have been 'in the global'. He has developed a keen sense of the multiple and conflicting ways in which transnational ties and interactions are transforming the spaces in which identities and cultures are forged and performed, and in which education takes place. Much of his research has sought to examine how educational systems around the world have interpreted and responded to the challenges and opportunities of globalization. In this collection of his papers, written over a period of more than two decades, Fazal Rizvi seeks to understand the shifting discourses and practices of globalization and education, critically examining the ways in which these are: reshaping our sense of identity and citizenship, and our communities creating transnational systems of ties, networks and exchange taken into account in the development of policies and programs of educational reform producing uneven social effects that benefit some communities more than others. Fazal Rizvi's analysis shows how recent global transformations have mostly been interpreted through the conceptual prism of a neo-liberal imaginary that have undermined education's democratic and cosmopolitan possibilities.
