American sociology is represented by numerous schools and directions and the Chicago school is one of them. When the University of Chicago was founded in 1892, it established the nation’s first department of sociology. T. Parsons’ late work focused on a new theoretical synthesis around four functions common to all systems of action, from behavioural to cultural, and a set of symbolic media that enable communication across them. This attempt to span the world with four concepts was too much for many American sociologists, who were then undergoing a retreat from the grand pretensions of the 1960s to a more empirical approach.

In Schools and Societies the authordemonstrates that more than any other major institution, schooling and schools are political, and virtually everyone has opinions to voice and interests to promote. Steven Brint musters a wealth of comparative material to show how schooling around the world is shaped by social forces even as it tries to shape the societies of the future.

I bought this book for a class I took. Its chapters are insightful to understanding the school system and effects on society. However, there is another edition of this same book which is cheaper than this one and is also found on amazon.

This book was highly disappointing and uninformed. Firstly, the author seems to have a thin grasp on current understandings of global development, as displayed in chapters 2 & 3 on education in 'industrialized' and 'developing' worlds.
The book displays inconsistencies in thinking, and many seeming uninformed statments in the chapters on inequality.
I do not recommend this book, except as a way to learn objectively about the topics in education, removing the actual content.
