This volume began as an idea that the three of us, as editors, had late in 2014, realising that 2017 would be the 50th anniversary of Michael Young’s arrival at the Institute of Education (now the UCL Institute of Education). In some senses the resulting volume is a Festschrift, from the German Fest ‘festival’ and Schrift ‘writing’, a Festschrift being defined as “a collection of writings forming a volume for presentation to a well-known scholar on the occasion of his attaining a certain age, pinnacle of his career, retirement, etc.” (Dictionary of Collective Nouns and Group Terms, 2008). However, from the beginning we wanted the volume to be more than hagiography and, without discussing this with Michael, all three of us were sure he would want this too. As anyone who knows Michael will appreciate, one of the many great things about him is his willingness to discuss cheerfully, and often over a drink, almost any aspect of education. At the same time, such conversations have considerable rigour. All three of us can attest to the fact that some of the most intellectually demanding discussions we have ever had have been with Michael.
