Educating for Democracy in a Changing World: Understanding Freedom in Contemporary America (Counterpoints #271) (Hardcover)

By Joe L. Kincheloe (Editor), Shirley R. Steinberg (Editor), Steve Fain (Editor)
It is the premise of Educating for Democracy in a Changing World that in the wake of the events of 9/11 and the wars in Afghanistan and Iraq, people recognize that there is an ever-increasing threat to democratic societies and nations. For most citizens of the world, freedom is a requisite condition of democracy. Understanding democracy has become difficult at a time when we are bombarded with phrases and slogans that seek to dichotomize it. This collection of essays is based on the contemporary responses of a diverse group of writers from education, international relations, law, political science, history, psychology, philosophy, and sociology to the questions about democracy for Americans within the context of the changing world.
