Abstract

We have four reasons for agreeing to review this book. First, we have long been interested in Critical Pedagogy, a field in which Peter Mclaren is among the outstanding authors. In 1999, one of the reviewers, Changyong Yang, researched Critical Pedagogy in his dissertation On the Evolvement of the New Sociology of Education. This work is now published in Chinese as The New Sociology of Education: Its Continuous and Rupture History. (Yang, C., 2004) Secondly, as a visiting professor in the Center for East Asia and Pacific Studies in the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, Yang’s research project is Sociology of Education: A Postmodern Practice and Its Theory in America. So Peter Mclaren and Ramin Farahmandpur’s (2005) book Teaching against Global Capitalism and the New Imperialism falls with our scope of research. Thirdly, Junrui Chang, a young scholar and a doctoral candidate, is now trying to apply the theory and method of Critical Pedagogy to do her research on art curriculum in Chinese rural society. Fourthly, as educational researchers in China, we are very much interested in Peter McLaren and his coauthor Ramin Farahmandpur’s effort on a socialist pedagogy that follows Marxism. We are glad to accept the new book for review.
