Critical Education Against Global Capitalism - by Paula Allman

Dear colleagues

I'd like to draw your attention to the new paperback edition of Paula Allman's 'Critical Education Against Global Capitalism' which is to be published by Sense Publishers any day now, price around £30.

This is a powerful text relating not only to adult education, about which it has much of importance to say, but also to the general context in which we live and work.

In particular, the new edition has an Afterword by the author in which she offers a detailed and up-to-date Marxist analysis of the current economic crisis and its causes, which is invaluable for helping us to link what is going on in our day-to-work with major global economic developments. It is also an invaluable text for responding to the growing interest in Marxism among students and activists alike as it becomes ever clearer that capitalism, far from triumphing, is in catastrophic crisis.

Best wishes

In support of Paula Allman's book, Stephen Brookfield and John Holst have just published Radicalizing Learning: Adult Education for a Just World.
The books links adult education to the creation of democratic socialism:

Paula Allman's book is beyond doubt one of the most important and possibly THE most important of all contemporary texts in education. It will be a classic. I can't think of an educational text that can match it in importance. Amazing!
