Informed by the belief that critical pedagogy must move beyond the classroom if it is to be truly effective, this essay collection makes clear how cultural practices--as portrayed in film, sports, and in the classroom itself--enable cultural studies to deepen its own political possibilities and to construct diverse geographies of identity, representation and place.

"The conception of Between Borders is a prime example of praxis in action. Giroux and Peter McLaren participate as editors in an effort to open up a space in which different voices, ones that have dramatically influenced these authors' own work, are able to represent themselves. . . Those interested in the relationship between pedagogy and cultural studies are well served by Larry Grossberg's excellent introduction to the book." -- Pepi Leistyna, Harvard Educational Review
