9780791400371: Critical Pedagogy, the State, and Cultural Struggle (Teacher Empowerment & School Reform)

Schools have been traditionally defined as institutions of instruction, but the authors of this volume challenge that position in order to generate a new set of cultural categories and constructs through which the nature and process of schooling can be more appropriately understood. Giroux and McLaren develop a theory of schooling that takes into account not only the more traditional relationship between teaching and learning, but also the import of wider cultural dynamics such as language, mass culture, popular culture, the state, theories of readership, ethnographic research, and subcultural studies.

Peter L. McLaren is Associate Director at the Center for Education and Cultural Studies, Miami University, Ohio.

Review:

It s imaginative, critical, powerful, and trenchant. The book is clearly on the cutting edge of educational theory. David Purpel, University of North Carolina, Greensboro
It deals with substantive and urgent issues regarding the current debate over schooling, yet is surprisingly diverse and wide-ranging, both in the perspectives it articulates and the theoretical discourses which inform it. The international flavor here is a genuine asset. The issues discussed are very important and are among the key concerns facing contemporary schooling in our society. This book is definitely in the forefront of work on cultural approaches to schooling and society. Personally, I consider the approach the authors of this book have taken to be among the most advanced approaches in school research. It draws from anthropology, semiotics, Marxist theory, hermeneutics, etc. Donaldo Macedo, University of Massachusetts, Boston"
