E.G. West Economic Liberalism and the Role of Government in Education by James Tooley

E.G. West is indisputably a major thinker in education. James Tooley's volume offers the most coherent account of West's educational thought. This work is divided into: intellectual biography; critical exposition of West's work; the reception and influence of West's work; and, the relevance of the work today.This is a major international reference series providing comprehensive accounts of the work of seminal educational thinkers from a variety of periods, disciplines and traditions. It is the most ambitious and prestigious such project ever published - a definitive resource for at least a generation. The thinkers include: Aquinas, Aristotle, Bourdieu, Bruner, Dewey, Foucault, Freire, Holt, Kant, Locke, Montessori, Neill, Newman, Owen, Peters, Piaget, Plato, Rousseau, Steiner, Vygotsky, West, and Wollstonecraft.
