    Editorial Reviews

    From the Publisher
    “Reading Dewey through the eyes of postmodern theories of social/interactive constructivism, these essays not only speak to issues of identity and power that Dewey elided, they speak directly to each other in a conversation about how democracy can become more deeply embedded in all aspects of experience.” — CHOICE
