Sydney : Helicon Press, 2004. Thick octavo, boards in illustrated dustjacket (lightly handled), pp. 623, extensively illustrated.

The author charts Wesley’s evolution from foundation in 1866 as a Methodist boys’ school to its present status, as a Uniting Church multi-campus coeducational enterprise. It also makes a broader contribution to educational debate by exploring the role of independent schools in Australia, how power is exercised in them, the tension between quality and equality in education, the impact of schooling on later life, and the contrast between single-sex and coeducational practice.
