Editorial Reviews

Encompassing a wide range of cultures, explores schools as sites for the cultural production of the educated person, the education person in competing sites of cultural production, and the educated person in state discourse and local practice. The topics include batch-produced children in France and the US, creating a Chicano worldview through schooling, producing biologists at school and work, school culture versus the subjectivity of youth in Taiwan, student resistance in Bolivian teacher training, and schools in the hills of Nepal. Together the 12 essays provide a groundbreaking comparative study. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (
