Book Description

In his seminal volume first published in 1982 Michael Apple articulates his theory on educational institutions and the reproduction of unequal power relations and provides a thorough examination of the ways in which race-gender-class dynamics are embedded in, and reflected through, curricular issues. This second edition contains a re-examination of earlier arguments as well as reflections on recent changes in education.

Reviews

"Education and Power is an important book. It is a book of questions, observations, and interpretations. Apple looks at schools and other work sites to see what they have in common." -- Harvard Educational Review
"Thoughtful, carefully reasoned, and compelling." -- Library Journal
