Whiteness and Class in Education Reviews

From the reviews: Preston is a serious academic. The book ... is ambitious in scope (including new empirical data as well as wide ranging reviews of the contemporary theoretical literature) and written with a clear voice that does not flinch from critiquing some of the key figures in the field. ... In the field of race and class inequities in UK education, this is one of the most important books of the decade. It deserves a wide readership ... .
