The New Political Economy of Urban Education: Neoliberalism, Race, and the Right to the City (Critical Social Thought)Urban education and its contexts have changed in powerful ways. Old paradigms are being eclipsed by global forces of privatization and markets and new articulations of race, class, and urban space.

The …

Kommende Nachhaltigkeit: Nachhaltige Entwicklung Aus Kritisch-Emanzipatorischer Perspektive (Feminist and Critical Political Economy) (German Edition)Die Frage, ob eine emphatische Bezugnahme auf nachhaltige Entwicklung in kritisch-emanzipatorischer Absicht uberhaupt noch moglich ist oder ob es nicht besser ware, sich von der Leerformel Nachhaltigkeit zu verabschieden, bildet den Ausgangspunkt des Bandes.
