About the Author

James Tooley is professor of education policy at Newcastle University. He is the author of the award-winning The Beautiful Tree: A Personal Journey into How the World's Poorest People Are Educating Themselves (Penguin and Cato), as well as numerous academic books and articles on education and development. He is the co-founder of chains of low-cost private schools in India, Ghana, Nigeria and Honduras. Previously, he has taught and researched at the Universities of Oxford and Manchester. His first job was as a mathematics teacher in Zimbabwe.


"As a novel, James Tooley's book would be thrilling and horrifying enough. Yet it is a true story, of being drawn into an endless labyrinth of imprisonment, injustice, corruption, bureaucracy, incompetence and misery, all because a colleague failed to pay a bribe a decade before. Tooley has done more for the education of the poor than almost anybody else, first in Hyderabad and then in many other places. And for this he was thrown into prison without charge - in Hyderabad. Tooley tells the story with detachment and insight, then emerges with his humanity intact." Matt Ridley, Author Of The Rational Optimist; "A great story told with insight, tension and wit. It reveals vividly that James Tooley's commitment to educating children from low-income families may be tested to the limits but will never be found wanting." Sir Michael Barber, Author Of How To Run A Government
