Essays to Honour Denis Lawton
Edited by David Halpin and Paddy Walsh

Introduced by an overview of Denis Lawton's work, and concluding with an interview with the subject himself, the essays pay tribute to his work in different ways. Some launch straight into an independent study or theoretical development in one of his many areas of interest. Others highlight a facet of his work, taking a cue from it to develop an argument further or differently, or focus more fixedly on a part of his work to critique a position, evaluate his influence on policy, or offer an observation on his founder's role in curriculum studies.
