Education secretary Michael Gove has spent the last week involved a row over the supposed spread of Islamist extremism in schools. For those who haven't been paying attention this has involved:
• A potentially faked letter alleging a 'Trojan Horse' plot to spread Islamist extremist values in Birmingham schools.
• A row over the government's approach to such extremists between Michael Gove and home secretary Theresa May, culminating with May's special adviser resigning.
• Gove being forced to apologise in public.
• Ofsted reassessing a group of Birmingham schools under orders from Gove and finding a 'culture of fear'.
• A lot of angry school parents.
Some of this stems from Michael Gove's belief that Britain must stand up to fundamental Islam, part of his reputation as one of the few members of the cabinet who could be branded a true neo-conservative.
Luckily, Gove's written a book on this very topic, enabling us to work out what he really thinks. And over the weekend we settled down with a copy of this 2006 work, entitled Celsius 7/7, to try and work out what's driving him on.
