About this book

The field of political science has not given sufficient attention to pedagogy. This book outlines why this is a problem and promotes a more reflective and self-critical form of political science pedagogy. To this end, the author examines innovative work on radical pedagogy such as critical race theory and feminist theory as well as more traditional perspectives on political science pedagogy. Bridging the divide between this research and scholarship on both teaching and learning opens the prospect of a critical, radical and utopian form of political science pedagogy. With chapters on Socrates, Frantz Fanon, Paulo Freire, Leo Strauss, Sheldon S. Wolin, e-learning, and a prison field trip, this book outlines a new path for political science pedagogy.

Reviews

“In a provocative shot across the bow of mainstream political science, William Sokoloff challenges students of politics to take seriously the role of pedagogy in engendering democratic citizenship and radical transformation. Drawing upon his experiences in a variety of educational contexts and his reading of important theoretical figures (of particular note, Sheldon Wolin, Jacques Derrida, Jacques Rancière, Frantz Fanon, and Paolo Freire), Sokoloff calls for a commitment to a critical, radical, and utopian pedagogy that both assumes the deeply political nature of the discipline and the enduring need to bring about deeper forms of democracy and justice in our political and social world.” (Bradley J. Macdonald, Professor of Political Science, Colorado State University, USA)
