1 Review
"Contributes to a radical formulation of pedagogy through its revitalization of language, utopianism, and revolutionary message. . . . The book enlarges our vision with each reading, until the meanings become our own." Harvard Educational Review "Constitutes the voice of a great teacher who has managed to replace the melancholic and despairing discourse of the post-modern Left with possibility and human compassion." Educational Theory "An affirmation of Freire's prodigiously activist approach to popular education and its capacity for securing transformative change." Contemporary Sociology

It's typical Freire, which is like wading around in a big puddle full of diamonds. There are nuggets of pure value all around you, but the writing is hard to penetrate. You really need to focus on the writing to get at the meaning; it ain't at all easy.
