Including four new chapters, this is a sweeping survey of critical pedagogy, written by world-renowned educator and public intellectual, Henry Giroux.
Henry A. Giroux is University Chair for Scholarship in the Public Interest and the Paulo Freire Distinguished Scholar in Critical Pedagogy at McMaster University, Canada. He is the author or co-author of 67 books including The Terror of the Unforeseen (2019), The Public in Peril: Trump and the Menace of American Authoritarianism (2018) and Race, Politics, and Pandemic Pedagogy: Education in a Time of Crisis (2021).
It is impossible to do justice to Giroux's tremendous work ... Take
hold of the book, feel the weight of its historical reckoning in
your hands ... then venture into the depths of the human condition
and the need for an educated escape. * Journal for Critical
Education Policy Studies *
Highly recommended for all pedagogues who are keen to counter the negativities of neoliberal ideologies in educational sites and practices by guiding their students towards criticality and alterative futures. * Sadia Habib, Goldsmiths University, UK (of the first edition) *
[Giroux] is one of the foremost scholars of critical pedagogy. * Angelo Letizia, Notre Dame University of Maryland, USA *
Represents a re-articulation of the work of a prolific writer who has argued the case for critical pedagogy since the 1970s. * Gary Clemitshaw, University of Sheffield, UK (of the first edition) *
In the midst of growing authoritarianism worldwide, Giroux's On Critical Pedagogy, pushes fiercely against the encrusted walls of a hegemonic culture of education that brutally imprisons the minds, bodies, and hearts of students, at all levels of the educational enterprise. Utilizing the language of critique, he eloquently counters efforts to undermine critical pedagogy and, in so doing, powerfully reinscribes the fundamental significance of education to any democratic vision of schooling and society. * ANTONIA DARDER, Leavey Endowed Chair of Ethics and Moral Leadership, Loyola Marymount University, USA *
