The first edition of The Making of Curriculum was published in 1988
and reviewers hailed it as a seminal work in the field. In that
work Goodson explored a number of aspects of the so-called
traditional subjects and described the way they develop over time
to a point where they can be promoted as 'academic' disciplines. He
showed that the claim to be academic was in fact the result of a
substantial political contest covering a century or more. The
traditional subject was, in short, invented. The first edition of
this book provided a series of challenging insights for those
desiring to make sense of the current debate over schooling.;In
this new and extended second edition, Bill Pinar adds an
illuminating introduction and Goodson brings his argument
up-to-date with a discussion of the National Curriculum - 'a
contemporary initiative in the making of curriculum.'
