We are living in a time of resurgent global conflicts and imperialistic tensions-a time in which many children are being left behind by school systems that appear more concerned with developing accountability schemes and standardized models of testing than with defending the right of every child to have access to a good education. In response to these oppressive and challenging conditions a group of committed educators and activists have come together to link educational transformation to the larger struggle to transform oppressive social relations. Critical Theories, Radical Pedagogies, and Global Conflicts draws from a range of viewpoints to demonstrate that another education, and indeed, another world, is possible.

Education researchers from North America and Europe explore global conflicts and the prospects of critical theories and radical pedagogies as bases for engaging in the practice of critique under contemporary and foreseeable conditions. They address some recent educational developments linked to contemporary global conflicts, explore critical theories, and rethink critical pedagogy at a time of resurgent global conflicts and imperialistic tensions.--Reference and Research Book News
