From the Publisher“The revised edition of Reading Poverty is as significant today as it was when it was first published over a decade ago. In this new edition, Shannon examines the inadequacy of current literacy policies and practices and encourages a more radical democratic agenda—one that moves beyond liberal, conservative, and neoliberal solutions and invites action, agency, and collective response.“
Rebecca Powell, Georgetown College, USA
"This book performs ideological readings of ‘poverty’ and ‘literacy’ and attends to larger sociopolitical contexts of education through a distinctive, critical approach. This is a very timely and important book, and Patrick Shannon is the right person to (re)write it."
Jory Brass, Arizona State University, USA
