This timely collection focuses on domestic and international education research on race and ethnicity. As co-conveners of the British Education Research Associations (BERA) Special Education Group on Race and Ethnicity (2010-2013), Race and Lander are advocates for the promotion of race and ethnicity within education. With its unique structure and organisation of empirical material, this volume collates contributions from global specialists and fresh new voices to bring cutting-edge research and findings to a multi-disciplinary marker which includes education, sociology and political studies. The aim of this book is to promote and advocate a range of contemporary issues related to race, ethnicity and inclusion in relation to pedagogy, teaching and learning.

"In the UK, we are still dealing with the aftermath of the murder of Stephen Lawrence and the consequences of the 2011 'riots' fuelled by poverty and racism. What do these events say about the way we should be providing education for all our children? What counts as good practice? How are race and ethnicity currently constituted? In a period of unprecedented hyper-diversity in the UK, how are we responding to the richness and differences that make up our contemporary social world? This elegant and lively collection deals with some of the most pressing contemporary issues that educators face in our education institutions today. This landmark book puts race and ethnicity firmly back on the educational agenda." - Meg Maguire, Professor of Sociology of Education, King's College London, UK
"This is a varied and multifaceted collection that will prove useful to a wide readership concerned to understanding how race and ethnic inequality operate in education and what can be done to interrupt them. The authors are drawn from different nations, they focus on a variety of issues, and they disagree about key aspects of theory and practice – the result is a stimulating and thought-provoking volume." - David Gillborn, Professor of Critical Race Studies and Director of the Centre for Research in Race & Education (CRRE) at the University of Birmingham, UK
"This is an invaluable book for those of us who are interested in race and ethnicity in education. The text offers an eclectic discussion on schooling issues within the British context and other western Global contexts, and the chapters explore race and ethnicity and racisms' manifestations in its different forms though policies and academic debates and through the student/pupil voice. This is a must have book for practitioners, teachers, lecturers, academic researchers and indeed students. The book is a reminder that issues of race and ethnicity are prevalent and show how it emerges and re-merges in its varied guises in the myriad educational contexts." - Shirin Housee, Course Leader for Sociology, University of Wolverhampton, UK
