The introduction makes a case for the significance of the Scrutiny movement on the grounds of the highly varied, often opposing, programmes for literary education and cultural critique that it supported or influenced. It explains the dual focus of the book, on the movement of ideas and people from Cambridge and into schools and other settings, and on the ways Scrutiny approaches were reworked as they were redeployed. The introduction argues that the movement cannot be analysed convincingly without archival research and an examination of institutions and processes as well as texts. The book's methodology draws on social and cultural history and models an intellectual history concerned with intellectual practice as much as with ‘thought’.
