Summary

Beginning from the premise that a range of Marxist theoretical tendencies, or Marxisms, inform recent critical scholarship in education, this volume reaffirms, rearticulates, and interrogates central philosophical and practical commitments in this tradition. Chapters engage important issues confronting the field in the present conjuncture in global capitalism, including the meaning of democratic education, neoliberalism’s ideological and material assault on teaching and learning, relationships between race and class in schooling and society, models for critical and emancipatory pedagogy, the implication of education in imperialism and colonialism, and links between education and revolutionary organizations and movements. Rather than attempting to provide a comprehensive view of the field, this volume presents a diverse set of crucial interventions that take up foundational as well as contemporary developments in Marxist theory and consider their implications for the field of education. The chapters in this book were originally published as journal articles by Taylor and Francis.
