Late last year under our Routledge Library Editions umbrella we published an immense 244 volume collection on Education. This set of reissued books spans the whole spectrum of education from early childhood education to teaching, learning and education research. Structured by sub-discipline you are able to purchase titles as mini-sets, individual titles and as eBooks.

To learn more about this selection of titles please explore our Routledge Library Editions section of this online catalogue.

Our Routledge Major Works publishing programme will release three important multivolume sets under our major themes in education series, the collections in this series bring together the most significant and influential writings on the key themes within education systems worldwide.

Edited by acknowledged leaders in the field, the volumes include essential readings from a wide range of sources, complete with new introductions and thorough indices, each collection gives an historical overview of the development of the theme concerned and also provides students, teachers and researchers with an insight into current debates within the field.

Forthcoming titles to look out for include Music Education, a collection that is not only a valuable reference source which addresses major themes, but is also a linked sequence of publications, tracing the evolution of thinking and research in music education over several decades until the present time.

Educational Assessment and Evaluation studies educational policy making in schools and Higher Education in the Asia-Pacific includes a look at the theory,study, history, teaching and learning within this region.

We also have an International Library of the Philosophy of Education set which you can browse by checking out the Routledge Library Editions Back list section of this catalogue.

Our Routledge Revivals programme have also reissued a mix of titles within Physical Education, Psychological Education, Philosophy of Education and the History of Education.
