Overview

One of the world’s leading social critics and educational theorists, Henry A. Giroux has contributed significantly to critical pedagogy, cultural studies, youth studies, social theory, and cultural politics. This new book offers a carefully selected cross-section of Giroux’s many scholarly and popular writings, which bridge the theoretical and practical, integrate multiple academic disciplines, and fuse scholarly rigor with social relevance. The essays underscore the continuities and transformations in Giroux’s thought, just as they offer invaluable approaches to understanding a range of social problems. Giroux’s work suggests that a more humane and democratic world is possible and provides critical tools that can assist concerned citizens in bringing it into being.
