Editorial Reviews

Booknews
Arguing that those involved in the production of academic knowledge (mainly Western educators) should examine assumptions associated with the creation of knowledge about indigenous peoples, the author (an academic whose background is not noted) examines academic representations of education and modern development in subaltern societies. Her analysis centers on a discussion of the production of knowledge in two scholarly texts in relation to the field of international and comparative education. Annotation c.
