Edited by Thomas Popkewitz, Lynn Fendler
Published March 16th 1999 by Routledge – 272 pages
"This collection of well-organized, well-written, and thoughtful essays edited by Popkewitz $ Fendler is an important contribution to educational thought and practice at the right time. This book responds to education's desperate need to push the boundaries of how to better understand the practice of schooling by moving beyond traditional explanations of power/knowledge relationships." -- Jaime Grinberg, University of New Mexico, Qualitative Studies in Education, 2001, Vo. 14
