Andy Green develops on his earlier historical work on Education and State Formation in a study of education and the nation state in an era of globalization. Education, Globalization and the Nation State offers the first sustained analysis of the implications of globalization for modern education systems. In a series of historical and comparative essays ranging from Europe to America and Asia, Green assesses the changing relations between education and the nation state in different regions, and concludes that the national education system is far from obsolete.

Recensioner i media

"Green has written a very important book; one that is welcome for its intellectual rigour as well as its forthrightness and its sobriety toward debates around globalization, postmodernism, the nation state and educational change ... we recommend it highly" - Greg Dimitriadis, Cameron McCarthy, British Journal of Sociology of Education "Overall, the book is a tour de force of comprehensive scholarship, theoretical and socio-political acuity, and stylish, accessible writing. A particular strength of the analysis is to be found in the way in which Green weaves together historical, comparative, sociological, political and education research sources to provide a fine example of policy scholarship in education." - Gerald Grace, History of Education Journal "Andy Green has once again succeeded in highlighting the complexity and contradictions of the relations between the nation state and education, while casting doubt upon popular myths about globalization." - Jill Blackmore, British Journal of Sociology of Education "Green ably sets the new scene: he has a strong grounding in educational history and, in partnership with Hilary Steedman, has done first-class empirical work on technical educational provision and attainment in different systems." Anne Corbett, The Times Higher Education Supplement "For those of us who still find meaning in the enlightenment project ... Green's book provides valuable insights and powerful arguments that sustain our commitment." Ronald G. Sultana, British Journal of Sociology of Education "In a chapter, written with Richard Aldrich, professor of education history and a colleague at the Institute of Education, he presents a fascinating and original examination of relations between education and national consciousness in what Frederick Engels called the "two islands peopled by four nations" Greater Britain" Patrick Ainley, Times Educational Supplement
