Reading Paulo Freire: His Life and Work

Front Cover
State University of New York Press, 1994 - Biography & Autobiography - 204 pages
This book was written as Paulo Freire himself would have done it, using a method of learning through victories and defeats in the same way one learns in life. The author follows a chronological line in which life and work are naturally mixed. In many cases, he lets Paulo Freire’s work speak for itself.
