Based in a holistic exposition and appraisal of Gramsci’s writings that are of relevance to education in neoliberal times, this book--rather than simply applying Gramsci's theories to issues in education--argues that education constitutes the leitmotif of his entire oeuvre and lies at the heart of his conceptualization of the ancient Greek term hegemony that was used by other political theorists before him. Starting from this understanding, the book goes on to compare Gramsci's theories with those of later thinkers in the development of a critical pedagogy that can confront neoliberalism in all its forms.

This book traces the legacy of racism across three continents and countless years, from its origins to the present. Mike Cole presents in-depth studies of racism in three countries: the United States, United Kingdom, and Australia, showing how each nation has experienced racism in different ways and through different periods. In the United States, he maps the continuing dual legacies of slavery and genocide, and he also details racism against Latinos and Asians. In the UK, he highlights the effects of colonialism and also looks at racism against Gypsies, Roma, Travellers, and Eastern Europeans. Finally, in Australia, he explores the idea of “Terra Nullius” and the devastating effect of the state interpretation of land law on its indigenous peoples. These detailed analyses result in a powerful portrait of global racism that shows it to be both endemic and multifaceted. Racism: A Critical Analysis marks a crucial step in both understanding racism and developing strategies to combat it.
