Formatted abstract
The second edition of the text Education, Equality and Human Rights: Issues of Gender, ‘Race’, Sexuality, Disability and Social Class, edited by Mile Cole, contains an interesting and informative collection of papers focusing on issues of social justice... the book is a timely and accessible discussion of education, equality and human rights issues, particularly those of gender, “race”, sexuality, disability and social class, as specified in the title.

Although focusing on the UK situation, this book has relevance for all western and developing nations that are functioning within the internationalised global market. The book raises a refreshing counterpoint to traditional neo-liberal views of education by exposing and critically examining contemporary societies’ epistemological foundations and axiomatic dimensions, exposing its “embeddedness in the corporate academic-complex” (p. xvii). As such, it should certainly be of interest to educators, social workers, students and professionals who may wish to make a difference for those who, traditionally have been disadvantaged within and through the structural arrangements of contemporary nations, allowing them to work towards a more equal and equitable society.
