Throughout U.S. history, education policies, practices, and politics have been described and tested to yield empirical data, often with little attempt to place findings in a larger theoretical infrastructure that could provide them with increased explanatory, critical, or even liberatory power. This collection fills that void by taking the point of view that neither research nor theory alone is adequate to the task of social explanation. Instead, Jean Anyon and her collaborators argue that they imbricate and instantiate one another, forming and informing each other as the inquiry process unfolds.

"This volume scrubs the mystique off social theories, making them accessible and even agreeable to a much wider audience, thus opening up immeasurable opportunities for future creative application. As instructor and students, we could not recommend this book more highly."--International Journal of Qualititative Studies in Education 2009 "This has been a valuable book for me, and I recommend it to anyone considering using social theory in their research, particularly doctoral students."--Joseph A. Maxwell, Education Review, January 2010
