From Resurrection to Revolution
Peter McLaren, named Outstanding Educator in America by the Association of Educators of Latin America and the Caribbean in 2013 and winner of numerous awards for his scholarship and international political activism, has penned another classic work with Pedagogy of Insurrection. One of the educators that Ana Maria (Nita) Araújo Freire credits as an architect of what has come to be known worldwide as critical pedagogy, and who Paulo Freire named his ‘intellectual cousin,’ McLaren has consistently produced iconoclastic work that has been heralded by educators worldwide as among some of the most significant commentary on the state of education. He is Honorary President of the Instituto McLaren de Pedagogía Crítica y Educación Popular in Ensenada, México, and Honorary Director of the Center for Critical Pedagogy Research at Northeast Normal University in China.

“In this dark night of the soul of global political economy, Pedagogy of Insurrection comes like a wild prophetic yell through the streets that would teach us of the radically democratic demand for revolutionary intolerance that must sound across the planet as never before. Here McLaren’s unparalleled pedagogical poetics rises up with new moral urgency to speak true words for and with humanity—an enflamed series of critical communiqués from the heart, these almost incantatory and expressionistic critical visions courageously unveil the global imaginary of violent corruption and...
