Perhaps not since Ralph Tyler's (1949) <I>Basic Principles of Curriculum and Instruction has a book communicated the field as completely as <I>Understanding Curriculum. From historical discourses to breaking developments in feminist, poststructuralist, and racial theory, including chapters on political theory, phenomenology, aesthetics, theology, international developments, and a lengthy chapter on institutional concerns, the American curriculum field is here. It will be an indispensable textbook for undergraduate and graduate courses alike.
