Essays by some of the world's leading educators provide a revolutionary portrait of new ideas and developments in education that can influence the possibility of social and political change. The authors take into account such diverse terrain as feminism, ecology, media, and individual liberty in their pursuit of new ideas that can inform the fundamental practice of education and promote a more humane civil society. The book consolidates recent thinking just as it reflects on emerging new lines of critical theory.

— Gary Pattison; Network--Newsletter Of The British Sociological Assn., No.74

A useful collection of articles by some of the most important representatives of 'Critical Pedagogy' . . . a valuable source that I would recommend to others to read.
— Paula Allman, University of Nottingham; Studies In The Education Of Adults

Could well become a classic piece.
— Ralph T. Mason; Journal Of Educational Thought(Jet)

A clear analysis of the present informational society in which the ability to select and acquire new information is crucial, and the critical perspective needed to create educational proposals that will help move society toward values of equality and solidarity.
