Book Description

First published in 2000. Routledge is an imprint of Taylor & Francis, an informa company.



Roslyn Arlin Mickelson is Professor of Women's Studies at the University of North Carolina, Charlotte. She is a Visiting Scholar in the Graduate School of Education at Stanford University in fall 1999.


"In her Foreword, Marian Wright Edelman, founder of the Children's Defense Fund, promotes this book as one that "shows us the face of homelessness in Brazil, Cuba, and the United States." Mickelson's book certainly does that, while offering the reader comparative analysis of education for the least priviledged children in the context of globalization. The book will be most appreciated by students of the social foundations of education and by sociologists of education who are looking to connect the education of children with larger scale social processes." -- Contemporary Sociology, May 2001
