    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.

'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.

    We urgently need to legalize and regulate drugs – this book explains why, and how to do it. 'Of all mankind’s self-inflicted wounds, ‘the war on drugs’ must be one of the most catastrophic . This passionate, articulate, and numerate statement of the case for legalising drugs could not be bettered. I hope it has the wide readership, and receives the careful attention, it deserves. It should be placed in the hands of all those who are in a position to make or influence policy and to reverse the present disastrous approach to what should be an entirely manageable human problem' Raymond Tallis, Retired Physician and Neuroscientist, Author, and Philosopher.
