NoNonsense Rethinking Education by Adam Unwin and John Yandell

What is knowledge? Who decides what is important? Who owns it? These are central themes which run through this title which aims to change perceptions and understanding of education. Using historical and contemporary examples the authors examine the motivations, conflicts and contradictions in education. Breaking down the structures, forces and technologies involved they chart an alternative approach.

'A brilliant little book, which as the title suggests, doesn't mess around and gets to the nitty gritty of what's going in education. It's now a key reading for my students'. - Dr Alpesh Maisuria , Senior Lecturer at the University of East London

'This book offers hope for a truly profound re-imagination of education'. - Anthony Paré , Professor of Language and Literacy Education, University of British Columbia.
