Reviews

"Kumar's Education and the Reproduction of Capital is a welcome addition to the literature because it demonstrates the destructive impact of neoliberalism in different localities across the globe and it does so with robust analyses from a number of well-known scholars who imagine strategies of resistance, analyze processes of knowledge production and the role of knowledge workers, and fundamentally rethink the role of schools in the current capitalist crisis." - Michael A. Peters, Professor Emeritus, University of Illinois; professor, Policy, Cultural & Social Studies in Education, University of Waikato

"This book does not shy away from the necessary task of putting increased pressure on the knowledge and practices that help to sustain capitalism. Depicting capitalist class practices and their effects across a range of sites in vivid terms and examining them from the vantage points of a diverse array of critical traditions, it makes an important contribution to promoting the wide discussion and fresh analyses that are urgent to the pedagogical work of clarifying the world's consciousness regarding the unsustainability of capitalism." - Deborah Kelsh, The College of Saint Rose
