"Mike Peters is one of the few contemporary educational theorists who knows the urgent questions that need to be raised and has the intellectual guts to bring them into the arena of debate....it is difficult not to remain highly impressed by the range and scope of Peters' erudition and his scholarly grasp of the field."-Peter McLaren, School of Education University of California, Los Angeles
"Wide in scope and generous in its insight, Michael Peters' book makes fascinating connections and serves up a smorgasbord of thematic delights as it courses its way through highways and byways of contemporary scholarship. The book is a treasure trove for connoisseurs of postmodern thought."-Colin Lankshear, School of Language and Literacy Education Queensland University of Technology, Australia
"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
