We Make the Road by Walking Conversations on Education and Social Change Press Reviews

The Myles Horton-Paulo Freire talks represent one of the most important educational conversations of the twentieth century.... This is the first book since Freire's Pedagogy of the Oppressed that I have said must be read. -Budd L. Hall, Secretary-General, International Council for Adult Education This book is an inspiration.... People interested in learning and social change will find in these pages hope, humor, passion, guidance, and humility. This final conversation between two educator from different continents reveals their common dream of human liberation, their common commitment to love and justice. -Professor Ira Shor, College of Staten Island, CUNY We Make the Road by Walking is a book of compelling passion, politics, and hope. The dialogue between Horton and Freire opens up new insights into the meaning of pedagogy, social criticism, and collective struggle. This book offers hope by demonstrating in the voices and practices of two of the great educator-activists of the twentieth century the reason for making pedagogy practical and theoretical in the service of social justice. -Professor Henry A. Giroux, Director, Center for Education and Cultural Studies, Miami University
