I thoroughly enjoyed reading this book. While the title may not suggest that this book is of direct interest to the readership of RIGEO, the contents most definitely are. Brooks has based her search for what constitutes the subject identity of a teacher and how it both influences and is influenced by their professional development, very firmly in her own experiences as a Geography teacher educator. Indeed, the book draws heavily on her own doctoral research. The examples used in the text are drawn from the English education system.
