Overview

Designed for introductory social foundations or multicultural education courses, this text offers a powerful model for cultural ecological analysis and pedagogy of responsibility, providing teachers and teacher educators with the information and classroom practices they need to help develop citizens who are prepared to support and achieve diverse, democratic, and sustainable societies in an increasingly globalized world.

A primary premise is that diversity and democracy must be considered within our larger and more fundamental relationships to the living ecological systems supporting our communities. The book examines issues of social justice – race, class, gender, globalization – within a larger EcoJustice framework. It offers an analytic model whereby teachers and their students learn to identify the deep cultural patterns and assumptions framing our relationships to each other and to the natural world. The Companion Website for this book, www.routledge.com/9780415872515, offers a wealth of resources linked to each chapter in the book.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"A must-read textbook. Its strength is not only its powerful and carefully considered analysis but also its student-centered approach; the text seamlessly guides students through a multitude of challenging concepts and, at the same time, engages them with its potent and insightful arguments."

Paul J. Ramsey, Eastern Michigan University, USA

"EcoJustice Education is not just another textbook. It is a bold vision for a possible future of social- and eco-justice. Accessible to students, teachers, and educators at all levels, Martusewicz, Edmundson, and Lupinacci make clear the important role education has to play and how educators can put to work in our practice the poignant and provocative thinking of Gregory Bateson, Gregory Cajete, Wendell Berry, and others."

Stephanie L. Daza, Manchester Metropolitan University, UK
