Overview

'The most striking feature of this book is the fact that a group of highly qualified scholars and educators collaborated before the dissolution of the Soviet Union exchanging ideas and practical programs for teaching ecological and cooperative education. They modeled the process they advocate. They changed their own thinking to understand the thinking of others. They couched their concerns in a framework of human rights, political and social responsibility, and practical transformations of national educational approaches that are often myopic and competitive. While accenting some positive educational trends within their national borders, they also criticized cultural and educational limitations.' Anne Shepard, Associate Superintendent of Schools, Catholic Diocese of Kansas City-St. Joseph, Missouri
