This sixty chapter Handbook provides a comprehensive overview of what is possibly the broadest, most loosely-coupled and least understood field of education. As a field of study, the sociocultural foundations of education lies both inside and outside the study of teaching and school administration. Using analytical methods borrowed from the humanities and social sciences, it provides critical, interdisciplinary perspectives of teaching and school practices.The volume approaches the social foundations of education in two ways. First, it provides traditional and emerging theoretical perspectives (or lens) that can be used to view and analyze any educational phenomena. Section I covers traditional perspectives and section II emerging perspectives. Second, it describes and analyzes specific cultural forces and changes (phenomena) using the theoretical perspectives provided in sections I and II. Section III examines the forces of globalization, institutions and power. Section IV looks at media, technology, and popular culture and Section V at schools, pedagogy and students.
