Teachers and Texts Press Reviews

Once again, Michael Apple has brought his extraordinary insight to bear on the political economy of schooling. . . . Apple provides a superb analysis of the circuits of power as they operate both within and outside of schools in the production and economy of texts, and in the construction of class and gender relations. Moreover, Apple not only lays bare how text, subjectivity, and knowledge reproduce and challenge the dominant order, he also makes a powerful call for viewing schools as sites of democratic struggle, and pedagogy as a project of possibility. This is a book that states its case clearly and with great brilliance. A must for anyone interested in developing a critical theory of education. -- Henry A. Giroux . . . In this provocative treatise, Apple continues his tradition of bold and innovative research in taking on the sorely neglected but eminently important issue of the historical constitution of teaching and the sexual division of labor. -- Peter McLaren
