Provocative and engagingly written, Beyond Schooling offers a challenging perspective on State schooling in England and the unrelenting increase in centralisation from the late 1960s until the present day. Exploring how the education of our children and young people should be recaptured from the State as the country moves into a precarious future, this book: argues that any fundamental reconsideration of schooling has much to learn from an anarchist analysis; introduces readers unfamiliar with anarchism to the main themes of this political philosophy and practice and their relationship to the political left and right; shows how an anarchist perspective on education raises deep issues about the community and the use of power; questions the notions of full-time schooling and age-grading, alongside conventional conceptions of the teaching profession and the potential educational role of parents as work declines or disappears. In its original reflections on the state of contemporary schooling and the paths to future reform, Beyond Schooling is a must-read for anyone seeking a new vision for the future of education and schooling.

Environments in Childrens Lives describes the role of the physical environment in children's development. It examines the physical and social nature of typical settings as part of the social system in which children live, are educated and socialized, and incorporates data useful for the programming and design of settings for children. Acknowledges the social, political, economic, and cultural influences on the conceptions of children and the settings they experience, and places them in an historical context. Three settings in particular are highlighted: the psychiatric hospital, schools, and day care centers. Includes not only the experiences of children but also of the adults who care for and interact with them.

More a collection of essays and other writings than "conversations" per se, this work presents work penned by male prison inmates involved in postsecondary education programs behind prison walls. The collection is presented by Lichtman (English, Columbia College) with the intention of demonstrating the value of such programs. The writings sometimes directly reflect on inmates' experiences with educational programs but more often simply reveal their experiences of prison and education through essays, fiction, and poetry.
