    The State and the Politics of Knowledge extends the insightful arguments Michael Apple provided in Educating the "Right" Way in new and truly international directions.

    Taylor and Francis 2005; US$ 54.95

    This volume deals with two major and apparently opposing forces within education and society: globalization and nationalism.

    Taylor and Francis 2008; US$ 54.95

    Neoliberal education policies have privatised, marketised, decentralized, controlled and surveilled, managed according to the business and control principles of new public managerialism, attacked the rights and conditions of education workers, and resulted in a loss of democracy, critique and equality of access and outcome. This book, written by an... more...

  • Education, Democracy, and the Moral Lifeby Susan Verducci; Gert Biesta

    Springer 2008; US$ 39.95

    The essays in this book explore the interconnections between democracy, education and the moral life.
