Introduction to education Studies by Bartlett and Burton has become a staple text for students of education over recent years. In this latest edition the authors have once again succeeded in providing a rich and detailed book that considers the nature and purpose of education as a discipline whilst always encouraging the reader to reflect upon their own educational biographies and histories. Adopting a multidisciplinary approach the text charts the ranging philosophical, sociological and ideological underpinnings of education and draws usefully upon this breadth of interpretations. The reader is consequently encouraged to question their own prejudices and positions in relation to their educational experiences.  A particular strength of the book is the way in which it engages the reader through reader reflections and activities. Consequently this text provides a useful and engaging resource for all students of education throughout their studies.
