From the Publisher"This excellent book provides a rich and exciting set of theories and evidence which are a valuable addition to this under-researched field. It also provides a highly informed and complex framework for understanding choice in higher education, and the significance and power of ethnicity and racism in educational settings."
"I readily identified with the life stories told here and would recommend Degrees of Choice to all involved or interested in going beyond government rhetoric to widen participation in HE."
"Reay, David and Ball have succeeded in producing a very neat readable book, which makes arguments that throw valid punches at our thinking and knowledge about mass higher education. The use of Bourdieu's thinking tools of habitus and field in ways that enable description, understanding and explanation of complex issues is of great value."
"This eloquently written and thoroughly researched book...should be essential reading, not only for all those in the field of widening participation and higher education (including government ministers and policy advisers), but also anyone with an interest in the persistence of class and other inequalities. I thoroughly recommend it."
