This volume offers a crucial resource for those interested and involved in linking schools and higher education with communities to foster justice-oriented curriculum and instruction. Noted scholars explore the connections, limits, and possibilities between service-learning and social justice education. Exemplary models, unexpected hurdles, and synthesis of justice-oriented research are some of the important topics explored. This is a critical addition to the literature for teachers, teacher educators, and scholars committed to community-based teaching and learning that truly grapples with and engages issues of diversity, democracy, and civic activism.
