We are constantly told that New Labour forms an historic departure from the traditions of the Labour Party. This book, written by a distinguished selection of academics and commentators, provides the most detailed comparison yet of old and new Labour in power. It is also the first to offer a comprehensive analysis of the last Labour Government before the rise of Thatcher and the re-emergence of the Labour Party under Tony Blair's leadership. It reveals much about the history of the Labour Party as well as providing a much-needed context from which to judge the current government.

As the centre of the world economy is moving to Asia, lifelong learning in Asia is attracting a great deal of attention in the educational field worldwide. Asia not only provides the largest education market, but also plays an increasingly important role in educational globalization. However, until now, only very limited literature has been available in English. This book addresses that gap and introduces global readers to the latest developments of theories, policies, and practical issues concerning lifelong learning in East Asia. Case studies on lifelong learning in East Asia - including mainland China, Japan, Korea, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Macau - are provided in this book. Lifelong learning in East Asia has been strongly influenced by Confucian culture as well as Western capitalism. This book analyses Confucian culture and the negotiation of Chinese and Western learning cultures in lifelong learning. This book will enable educators to understand the recent developments in lifelong learning in selected Confucian-heritage countries and regions, and promote effective international collaboration in lifelong learning worldwide. This book was published as a special issue of the International Journal of Lifelong Education.

Many school decision-makers and educational practitioners talk about developing an ultimate school work environment, but few actually move beyond the talk. It is very common for individuals in positions of power to make statements about how great it is to work in the school while the rest of the employees know the “real” work situation. The information in this book helps administrators to move beyond words and discover what it takes to turn words into reality and actually transform a school into an ultimate school work environment.

Rethinking US Education Policy links proposals on educational policy to the need for a new sociopolitical framework that might allow for improved thinking on educational reform. Using research data produced by the Obama administration, including public policy texts, and interviews with scholars and experts on the knowledge economy and education, Araya argues that the rhetoric on the knowledge economy has come to dominate and structure a wide range of educational reform policies, and explores sociopolitical proposals for rethinking US educational reform.
