Publisher Description

Foucault, Power, and Education invites internationally renowned scholar Stephen J. Ball to reflect on the importance and influence of Foucault on his work in educational policy. By focusing on some of the ways Foucault has been placed in relation to educational questions or questions about education, Ball highlights the relationships between Foucault s concepts and methods, and educational research and analysis. An introductory chapter offers a brief explanation of some of Foucault s key concerns, while additional chapters explore ways in which Ball himself has sought to apply Foucault s ideas in addressing contemporary educational issues.

In this intensely personal and reflective text, Ball offers an interpretation of his Foucault That is, his own particular reading of the Foucauldian toolbox. Ideal for courses in education policy and education studies, this valuable teaching resource is essential reading for any education scholar looking for a starting point into the literature and ideas of Foucault.

Review

"Ball's use of Foucault as applied to specific instances of educational policy is a powerful model for scholars and students as it provides an approach through which to analyze and understand past and present educational policy. Summing Up: Reccommended."- J.A. Helfer, Knox College, for CHOICE, November 2013

"........what Ball has constructed here is valuable, partly because he brings his subject into relief personally, intellectually and methodologically; but also and more importantly because he goes beyond just analysing and applying Foucault and attempts to `do' Foucault. It is his use of genealogy and the distinct autobiographical slant which appears and reappears throughout that set this book apart, and make it needed." - Ben Knight, International Journal of Lifelong Education
