Social movements, collective action, imaginative campaigning, grassroots politics, empowerment of the excluded, indigenous knowledge, appropriate development, participation, and literacy all have popular education in common. Social and political history in Latin America is hard to understand without knowing about the social movements which have consistently provided the progressive and radical impetus for change. This history of popular education looks at one of the most successful social movements to use popular education, the Movement of Landless Rural Workers (MST) in Brazil, as well as theoretical and practical analyses. It highlights the importance of popular education to the "new" social movements based around identity, such as women's and indigenous organizations and includes a biography of Paulo Freire.
