Summary

In recent years education has become increasingly perceived as an area of risk. A number of highly publicised incidents have heightened awareness of the potential dangers to be found in teaching intuitions. Although there is now a substantial conceptual literature on risk and the meaning of the risk society, such ideas have not to date been rigorously applied to the educational sector.

The authors of this innovative volume, first published in 2005, address this gap, discussing the relevance of risk discourses of educational processes. This book will greatly interest both sociologists and educationalists interested in the interaction between education and contemporary trends in society.
