Editorial Reviews

Helen Gunter

“This is a sumptuous book: rich in detail and scholarly in conceptualisation. Ball and Junemann have undertaken a forensic analysis of actor interactions and so made the business of philanthropy transparent and intelligible. Living within and so far surviving ongoing reform experiments is exhausting, but these authors help make sense of unfolding and complex processes through their political science knowledge and expertise.”
Ken Jones

“This is by far the best account of the social shapes of privatization that we have. Abounding in brilliant insights and startling detail, it maps a new landscape of education. It will have a decisive influence on educational and policy sociology.”
Anthropology & Education - Cat McManus

“This is a slim volume but one that is thick with information. For those interested in another of ‘the other sides’ of school reform, Networks, New Governance, and Education is a particularly useful tool. In addition, however, it is also extremely helpful in bolstering one’s understanding of the new hybridity that characterizes what is now the education market rather than the education sphere. Finally, it has particular relevance for those interested in new ways of examining the networks of people and organizations that have increasing influence on life in the 21st century.”
