This book is about power ― power in the classroom, in our schools, and in our society. Schools, teachers, students, and teaching exist in a churning cauldron of interrelated institutions and social forces. Power relations in schools reflect these larger societal forces and the interconnections of our institutions.

Seth Kreisberg died suddenly in December 1989 at the age of 33. At that time, he was Assistant Professor of Education at the University of Massachusetts at Amherst. Kreisberg served on the Teaching Peace Grantmaking Board of the Peace Development Fund in Amherst and was actively involved with Educators for Social Responsibility.Review:
This book is also about empowerment ― the empowerment of teachers and students. It explores the process through which people develop more control over their lives and acquire the skills and dispositions necessary to be critical and effective participants in our society.
The heart of this book, and Kreisberg’s unique contribution to the empowerment literature, is his elucidation of the difference between power over and power with in his search to understand the nature of power that can empower individuals and communities. Kreisberg draws upon educational, political, feminist, and psychological theory, and, especially, the voices of teachers, in his framing of the question: What are the dynamics of power that we as teachers can create in our relationships with our students that will be empowering for both our students and ourselves?
