This work contributes to teachers' and academic researchers' understanding of the varied and complex ways inclusion and exclusion can be understood. It provides a lucid, coherent analysis into the nature of categorization, labeling and discursive practices within official discourse and procedures as well as the positional relationships between space, place and identities in relation to the experience of marginalized people including disabled pupils and young people.

From the reviews: "Felicity Armstrong ... provides, in her book, an interesting review of several issues that must be considered when talking about inclusion, such as policy and the construction and placing of the disabled child as 'other', in case of special schools. ... would be a valuable addition to the library of anyone involved in education, from trainee teachers to academics in the field."
