The author provides an example of the theory and practice of dialogic learning. By mixing educational and social theory with literature, life narratives, and personal accounts, he creatively narrates the practice of dialogic learning in a seemingly utopian reality: a literary circle in which low-literacy adults enjoy reading books by authors like Kafka, Dostoyevsky and Garcia Lorca. the book highlights both theory and practice; it is both expository and narrative; and it refers as much to educational and social science works as to classical literature.

Prairie Town describes the contemporary rural condition and efforts to sustain rural life in one small Minnesota community at the turn of the 21st century. The book considers the rural literacies that circulate in this community as residents work to redefine their position within the context of globalization. Prairie Town's story offers us hope as we learn that neoliberalism is not inevitable, nor is the demise of rural America. Instead, we learn that not everything can be bought and sold, and disidentification with dominant societal structures is possible within a participatory democratic society.

This book calls for a different understanding of the professional preparation of pre-service teachers, critically reflecting on issues of caring and gender, and challenging the dominance of "words only" educational research methodologies. Using conceptual tools from visual anthropology, cultural studies, feminism and critical pedagogy, Fischman focuses on the educational dilemmas that students and professors in teacher education programs face within institutions that reinforce, rather than challenge, oppressive class, racial, ethnic and gender dynamics. He pays special attention to the transmission of models of teaching that are invested of essential masculine and feminine patterns that potentially lead to two very distinctive professional careers: one that is associated with "dedication" and "care," and a second that emphasizes "order" and "command."

Saltman and Goodman show how corporate-produced curricula, films, and corporate-promoted books often use depictions of family love, childhood innocence, and compassion in order to sell the public on policies that ironically put the profit of multinational corporations over the well-being of people. In doing so, the authors reveal the extent to which globalization depends upon education and also show how battles over culture, language, and the control of information are matters of life, death, and democracy.
