The fifth and final book in the Discourse, Power, Resistance series, which has provided stringent and timely critique of current education, examines identity formation. It argues that teachers and learners are pressed to conform their professional identity to a model imposed by distant policy makers who have wholly different concerns. The result is oppressive so learners and teachers adopt various strategies of resistance. The contributors are Anne-Marie Bathmaker, Yota Dimitriadi, Eileen Honan, Cheryl Hunt, Mhairi Mackie, Maggie MacLure, Christina Schwabenland and David Selby. Jerome Satterthwaite and Lorna Roberts are based at Manchester Metropolitan University and Wendy Martin at the University of Plymouth. This is a book for academics and students working at all levels of education and for policy-makers and managers.
