Perhaps not since Ralph Tyler's (1949) "Basic Principles of Curriculum and Instruction" has a book communicated the field as completely as "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.
