About this book

Marxist thinking can offer a critical understanding of education in an international context. Jones tackles these issues from a variety of angles and perspectives, taking advantage of recent theoretical innovations in Marxist analysis as well as the personal experiences of educational practitioners with Marxist commitments. With a specific focus on pedagogical practices as cultural practices, this book combines detailed case studies of local situations with broad, critical overviews of global development and challenges.

About the authors

PETER E. JONES is Principal Lecturer in Communication Studies at Sheffield Hallam University, UK.

Reviews

"As faith in capitalism continues to wobble, as radical educators sense a new energy and interest in alternatives, this volume brings fresh, bracing perspectives to the struggle. Robust and nuanced new Marxist scholarship animates cases ranging from nursery teachers to Venezuela s education reforms, and offers invaluable, powerful critical tools for those seeking to rejuvenate dialogues in Marxism and education." - Tara Fenwick, Professor of Professional Education, University of Stirling"Congratulations to Peter E. Jones and the other contributors to this excellent volume - one that reflects the continuing value of Marxist thought in the field of educational research and that is also an admirable addition to the important project set in motion by Glenn Rikowskiand Anthony Green. All of us in the field of Marxist educational research and practice owe them and all those who carry on this projectour gratitude." - Paula Allman, author of Critical Education Against Global Capitalism: Karl Marx and Revolutionary Critical Education
