“Truth be told, Freirean education is more necessary now than it has ever been. As a critical contemplation for educators to consider when re-imagining, implementing, and evaluating Freirean foundations during these unprecedented times, Freirean Echoes: Scholars and Practitioners Dialogue on Critical Ideas in Education offers contemporary, liberatory, and powerful insights that aim to uplift ideas that might otherwise be silenced by mainstream approaches to reform. This is a must-read anthology for educators and those concerned with humanization and social transformation in society and schools.” —Patrick Camangian, Professor of Teacher Education, University of San Fransisco
“This book offers rich description of how we can help young people to learn how to make a difference in their lives and their community. It provides important examples of the conditions and contexts in which young people learn how to develop agency.” —Dana Mitra, Professor of Education, Penn State University, Founding editor of the International Journal of Student Voice
(2021 AESA Critics' Choice Award Winner & 2021 SPE Outstanding Book Award Winner) "This edited collection incorporates diverse voices to elucidate interactions relating to race within education systems covering early childhood to academia. Although topics are varied, the editors offer many contemplative analyses across settings with specific examples of addressing controversies as teachable moments rather than as negative occurrences to be avoided. This philosophical approach grants authors the opportunity to discuss identity, intersectionality, and the detrimental effects of such instances on individuals from diverse backgrounds." —Review excerpt from G. Moreno, Northeastern Illinois University, in CHOICE, October 2020, Vol. 58, No. 2
(2021 AESA Critics' Choice Award Winner & 2021 SPE Outstanding Book Award Winner) “Excellence, insights, ideas, and inspiration abound in this volume! This is the book you’ve been waiting for whether you are a researcher or a builder, a frontline teacher or a student of education, one who wants to know the theory or one who wants the implementation blueprint. African-Centered Education teaches us with a flow and with connections that deepen our reading experience with this volume.” —Madge Gill Willis, Ph.D., Co-Founder & Director, Nsoromma School

(2021 SPE Outstanding Book Award Winner) “For parents, educators, school administrators, and other stakeholders who share a commitment to improving education and to understanding how schools in the United States got to a place where some accountability measures diminish equity and damage the profession of teaching, Belmonte’s book will be illuminating. Belmonte offers real-world examples, clear explanations, and thoughtful reflections that bring clarity to current conceptions of accountability.” —Steven L. Turner for Teachers College Record, 8/31/20

Kennett for Teachers College Record, 12/22/20
(2021 SPE Outstanding Book Award Honorable Mention) “Practical, timely, but most importantly, this book is written from authentic classroom experiences.

(2020 SPE Outstanding Book Award Honorable Mention) “Democracy and education are commonly used in public discourse. Yet these two grand words are often regrettably misunderstood. Paul and Gina’s timely book offers fresh and critical perspectives on democracy and education and what they can become, particularly for those who have been historically oppressed. Educators, policymakers, researchers, and avid readers genuinely interested in knowing or at least imagining what education for all might look like in a democratic society should not miss this amazing empirical work!” —Pierre W. Orelus, Fairfield University
“In these exquisitely crafted essays, Deborah P. Britzman personifies her psychoanalytic state of mind, entering what she calls the crypt of curriculum, asking: “why curriculum at all?” If space limits you to one Britzman book, make it this one.” —William F. Pinar, Tetsuo Aoki Professor in Curriculum Studies, University of British Columbia, Vancouver, Canada
(2018 AESA Critics' Choice Award Winner & 2019 SPE Outstanding Book Award Winner) "Getting to Where We Meant to Be is an insightful, thoughtful, and readable book well-suited for undergraduates in teacher education programs. The authors stimulate the reader’s critical reflection on the assumptions they may hold about schools while also discussing social justice orientations and the importance of the relationship between public education and democracy." —Melanie Janzen for Teachers College Record (ID Number 22615)
“…the struggle for democracy has not ceased, thanks to the efforts of João Paraskeva, his colleagues, and his comrades throughout the field of education. Which is why this magisterial collection of essays becomes so urgent. The essays included in this stellar collection can provide the necessary seedbed of ideas and practices for rethinking how to refashion our leadership and policy agendas for the refurbishing of a radical democracy for a post-pandemic era.” —Peter McLaren, Distinguished Professor in Critical Studies, Chapman University
“Black Immigrants in North America is a rarity in researching and theorizing the unique lived experience of Black immigrants–both continental and diasporic Africans. Black immigrants, argues Dr. Ibrahim, complicate the very category of Blackness: moving it from a colonial and uni-dimensional category to a complicated and rhizomatic category that is forever becoming. Urgently needed, Black Immigrants in North America is a must read for those who are interested in the Black body, Black immigration, Black youth, and Black pedagogy.” —George J. Sefa Dei, OISE, The University of Toronto
“Changing Academia Forever explains how we in the Black Student Union were able to fundamentally change universities in America. We organized a strike, we worked closely with our communities, and we made a coalition with students of every racial group. This is the kind of organizing we need now to save humanity and the planet.” —Danny Glover, American actor, film director, and political activist
“Our education of Blackness and Africanness for political action and social change would be incomplete without attention to the perspectives, frameworks, theorizations, analyses, and visions provided in Cartographies of Blackness and Black Indigeneities.” —Carl E. James, Jean Augustine Chair in Education, Community & Diaspora, York University
(2019 SPE Outstanding Book Award Honorable Mention) "Boldly unmasking and challenging the colonial logic that underpins homogenizing classroom instruction across the disciplines and affirming the anti-colonial theoretical foundations of epistemic resistance rooted in indigenous spirituality, ways of knowing and being, this visionary collection offers vital conceptual tools and pedagogical possibilities that are bound to advance the global struggle for humanizing knowledge production and anti-racist education practice." —Joyce E. King, PhD, Benjamin E. Mays Endowed Chair for Urban Teaching, Learning & Leadership, Georgia State University, USA
“This insightful volume illustrates the sweep of campus activism, spanning the complex issues of race, gender, identity politics, political correctness, and the ubiquity of social media as their main theater. In a political age in search of a compelling narrative for an inclusive democratic ideal, this provocative book captures the diverse voices of student activism.” —Richard Guarasci, President of Wagner College and Chair of the National Board of Directors of The Association of American Colleges and Universities
"The connections between power, politics, and education can be elusive at times, which is intentional by the powers that be. But Giroux has never been fooled or scared to make the connections that explain power and the injustice inflicted on the most vulnerable. Giroux’s body of work is clear, concise, razor sharp, and aimed at not only examining power, but also its impact on human life. The New Henry Giroux Reader is indispensable for anyone interested in understanding and undoing this American horror story we are all living." —Bettina L. Love, Associate Professor, University of Georgia, Department of Educational Theory & Practice
“In this book, expert and powerful voices deliver impactful and encouraging messages, particularly to those of us who are still trying to figure out our space and place at home, on the streets, in the classroom, on campuses, in politics, and yes, in the world.” —Jeanine Ntihirageza, Professor, Northeastern Illinois University
“A wonderfully colorful, creative, radical, and lively way to bring together the lived history of an individual with the larger historical struggle for a more just world—indeed a revolutionary message for our times.” —Antonia Darder Leavey, Endowed Chair in Ethics and Leadership, Loyola Marymount University
"The information generated and transmitted within universities has traditionally resulted in privilege and structures of exclusion. The engaging format of this book, which combines Freire’s principles and methodology and the power of story, invites reflection, dialogue and action, modeling how the exceptional partnership of Chapman University and the community organization Padres Unidos, evolved within parameters of inclusion, honoring each other’s wisdom and culture, and developing a spirit of human solidarity leading to increased knowledge and effective transformation." —Alma Flor Ada, Professor Emerita, University of San Francisco
