Synopsis: One of the most compelling ethnographies of school ever written, "Schooling as a Ritual Performance" has for over a decade made its mark among educators, sociologists, and those seeking to understand the cultural meaning of classroom practices. Written by one of the major world figures on the educational left, "Schooling as a Ritual Performance" is a pioneering study of the partnership between capitalism and religion and the educational offspring it produces. Not since Paul Willis' "Learning to Labor" has an educational ethnography about schooling so pushed the limits of current social theory.

Now, in a new edition to this classic text, McLaren engages with some of the latest anthropological thinking and presents readers with a powerful manifesto for critical ethnography in the coming millennium.

About the Author: Peter McLaren is one of the foremost social theorists in North America and a leading international figure on the educational left. He is known throughout the world for his political criticism and his passionate commitment to social justice. McLaren teaches in the Division of Urban Schooling at the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies at the University of California, Los Angeles. His most recent book is Revolutionary Multiculturalism: Pedagogies of Dissent for the New Millennium (Westview Press, 1997). His work has been published in eleven languages.
