Power, Meaning, and Identity; Essays in Critical Educational Studies (Counterpoints #109) By Michael W. Apple Cover Image


Michael W. Apple's critical writings have been influential throughout the world. This collection brings together many of his essays on curriculum, evaluation, and critical educational and cultural theory. In clear and unmystified prose, these essays enhance our understanding of how thoroughly political educational policies and practices actually are. In the process, he illuminates the histories and realities of class, race, and gender in education. Combining work written for a broad and general audience with that aimed at those who are already grounded in the multiple traditions of critical educational studies, Apple's unique voice - nuanced, passionate, and clear - comes through.
