This book, first published in 1977, attempts to unravel the complex debate behind the reorganisation of comprehensive secondary schools in Britain. It sets the British experience in perspective by comparing it with that of other Western European societies and into relief by contracts with the USA. The politics of reform are explored, and their social roots in changing class relations are discussed. This book will be of interest to students of sociology and education.
