Overview

The struggle over the academic canon, the politics of racial justice, the educational role of the wider culture, and the assault on higher education by right-wing conservatives - these and more, explains Henry A.

In this new edition of a classic text, Giroux reflects on the limits and possibilities of border crossings in the twenty-first century - from the increased militarization of public spaces, the rise of neoliberalism, the war in Iraq, and the Abu Ghraib prison scandal - and the vital role they must play in any debate on education and pedagogy.
