It's an extraordinary piece of work. I've never seen a book on any topic more completely cover the whole of its subject matter. Quite simply, everything is there. Huddleston and Kerr, both experts in their field, have given us the complete guide to Citizenship Education in schools. It will tell you how to do it and to get all the boxes ticked when OFSTED comes round... The [editors] write with passion and belief, and with absolute authority. They fulfil the brief of telling teachers how to do the job required by the Statutory Order, but so strong is their conviction that the book is principled as well as pragmatic... As something... to dip into and find nuggets of practical wisdom it's outstanding. -- The Journal of Personalised Learning Now
