Overview

First published in Portuguese in 1968, Pedagogy of the Oppressed was translated and published in English in 1970. The methodology of the late Paulo Freire has helped to empower countless impoverished and illiterate people throughout the world. Freire's work has taken on especial urgency in the United States and Western Europe, where the creation of a permanent underclass among the underprivileged and minorities in cities and urban centers is increasingly accepted as the norm.

With a substantive new introduction on Freire's life and the remarkable impact of this book by writer and Freire confidant and authority Donaldo Macedo, this anniversary edition of Pedagogy of the Oppressed will inspire a new generation of educators, students, and general readers for years to come.

This book is a guide on not only how to teach, but how to go about everyday life. Pedagogy of the Oppressed gives a detailed outline on how to free yourself as well as others around you. While Freire was relating this book to large amounts of people that are being oppressed it can, and does relate to everyday life. The book is hard to read though, but do not let this discourage you from reading it. Just buy a dictionary when you purchase this book. Then sit down and read. Your mind will open to new ideas that you never thought were there. It did for me!

This is by far the best book I read during grad school...even if I didn't have to read this for a class, I would have devoured Fierre's masterpiece! No other text has ever given me a greater understanding of the plight of those oppressed by the 'majority' or dominating populations. My whole understanding of the world and history was turned on its head. I recommend this book to anyone interested in social justice, affirmative action, civil rights, minority struggles...it applies not only to the community in Brazil, but all peoples facing social and economic oppression.

This book changed my life when I read it during my Master's program at Pace University. It shaped my 11 year teaching career and continues to shape my work. If you are considering going into teaching, or are currently a teacher, this is a must read.
