This book critically examines the overall interplay between globalisation, social inequality and education. It explores conceptual frameworks and methodological approaches applicable in the research covering the State, globalisation, social stratification and education. The book, constructed against this pervasive anti-dialogical backdrop, aims to widen, deepen, and in some cases open, discourse related to globalisation, and new dimensions of social inequality in the global culture.

From the reviews:

The volume edited by Joseph Zajda, Karen Biraimah, and william Gaudelli offers 11 chapters that deal with the issue extremely critically. The book aims at discussing the factors determining social inequality in education in the context of global culture. It is fruitful because they show that the assumed direct relationship between cultural capital and school performance . offer valuable contributions to the subject of inequality in education. (Marcelo Caruso, Comparative Education Review, August, 2010)

A major aim of Education and Social Inequality in the Global Culture, which is the first volume in the 12-volume book series Globalisation, Comparative Education and Policy Research, edited by Joseph Zajda and his team, is to present a global overview of the relationship of education, socio-economic status, and globalization. By examining some of the major education policy issues, particularly in the light of recent shifts in education and policy research, the editors aim to provide a comprehensive picture of the intersecting and diverse discourses of globalization, education, and policy-driven reforms. The spirit of dialogical encounter has very soundly directed editors' efforts in organizing this volume. The editors' task is to deepen, and in some cases open widely, diverse and significant discourses related to globalization, social stratification, and education. The impact of globalization on education policy and reforms is a strategically important issue for us all. More than ever before, there is a need to understand and analzse both the intended and the unintended effects of globalization on e- nomic competitiveness, educational systems, the state, and relevant policy changesall as they affect individuals, educational bodies (such as universities), policy-makers, and powerful corporate organizations across the globe. The evo- ing and constantly changing notions of national identity, language, border politics and citizenship which are relevant to education policy need to be critiqued by appeal to context-specific factors such as localregionalnational areas, which sit uncomfortably at times with the international imperatives of globalization.
