Book Description

Freire and Macedo analyse the connection between literacy and politics according to whether it produces existing social relations, or introduces a new set of cultural practices that promote democratic and emancipatory change.


`What is always so enjoyable in Friere's writing is that he is his own model. The mixture of pulsating action and quiet intellectual reflection in these pages is exactly his view of reading...Every chapter in these 180 pages asks teachers to think again about how they teach, what they want for their pupils and how to get on with it'. - Norman Evans, TES
