"Through a number of publications over the last three years, Michael Peters has established himself in education as a leading scholar on poststructuralist thought. This book, along with his recent collection on Lyotard, Education and the Postmodern Condition (Bergin & Garvey, 1995), confirms this judgement. Peters brings together in this latest book...fresh content and insights gained from his extensive and ongoing reading of the original and secondary sources. This will be an important source for educationalists interested in poststructuralist thought and French philosophy since World War II."-James Marshall, Professor and Dean of Education The University of Auckland, New Zealand
