Kincheloe (education, City U. of New York, and Brooklyn College) believes that social studies education in the U.S. has gone through 40 years of confusion, and is now in critical need of reform. In this text, he explores how those who believe in and teach about the potentials of democracy can deal with postmodern American society and the feelings associated with it. Throughout the text, the author examines the relationship between teaching social studies and the lessons of the larger social, cultural and political realms, emphasizing the need for social studies educators to teach within the context of contemporary society.
