Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

First published in Portuguese in 1968, Pedagogy of the Oppressed was translated and published in English in 1970. The methodology of the late Paulo Freire has helped to empower countless impoverished and illiterate people throughout the world. Freire's work has taken on especial urgency in the United States and Western Europe, where the creation of a permanent underclass among the underprivileged and minorities in cities and urban centers is increasingly accepted as the norm.

With a substantive new introduction on Freire's life and the remarkable impact of this book by writer and Freire confidant and authority Donaldo Macedo, this anniversary edition of Pedagogy of the Oppressed will inspire a new generation of educators, students, and general readers for years to come.

   Absolutely Essential reading for any activist
This book, which has sold over 500,000 copies, is brilliant, incisive, and absolutely essential reading for anyone trying to bring change, trying to wake people up, trying to bring justice to their part of the world. The ideas are so important that I have to pinch myself to realize that I hadn 't read this book years ago. Don 't wait any longer ; don 't wait any longer. Stop what you are reading and get this book. You won't regret it. I publish a site for progressive activists that ranks Technorati among the top 100 blogs as one of the top 100. '' Google Liberal News and my name and it'll come out on top. I'd say that this book is way up there near the top of the reading list of what should read the activists. It may seem like it is just for oppressive authoritarian regimes, but it applies to so many aspects of injustice in the U.S. You 'll be amazed.
   Critical classic
This classic was banned in the first decade of the 21st century by the paranoid politicians of Arizona, who had crushed the Mexican American Studies program in the Tucson Unified School District. Not only did it influence the informed, cosmopolitan teachers who tried to provide their oppressed students with an alternative, respectful view of themselves, but also thousands of educators and millions of students around the world. Imagine treating students with respect and insisting that their rights be respected and their options increased! Imagine treating students with respect!
   Great, eye-opening read
Great, eye-opening read without the pretense that is often associated with this subject matter. Chapter 2 already has a great deal of substance. In other words, this is not the kind of book that carries 150 pages before there is a payoff. It is a powerful exploration into the realms of education, pedagogy, and oppression, but not in the trite sense that we hear regularly. Has the potential to change someone's way of thinking and is as relevant today as ever.
   I absolutely love this book
I absolutely love this book and consider it a must have for any educator or person who works with oppressed groups. The book helped me better approach my teaching job as a person of privilege, working with high-risk students in a high poverty area. It explains how to allow the oppressed to come to their own conclusions about the ways of the world instead of treating them as a container to be filled with purportedly superior ideas of a teacher. He gives an actionable method for guiding oppressed people to take an active and critical role in their education through the use of easily executed thematic studies and questioning. He includes many historical examples to create a strong foundation for his arguments. I found his writing rewarding but extremely challenging, if you are patient with this book, there is much to learn.
