At the beginning of the new millennium, educators, parents, and others should reevaluate what it means for adults and young people to grow up in a world that has been radically altered by a hyper capitalism that monopolizes the educational force of culture as it ruthlessly eliminates those public spheres not governed by the logic of the market.

Giroux provides new theoretical and political tools for addressing how pedagogy, knowledge, resistance, and power can be analyzed within and across a variety of cultural spheres, including but not limited to the schools. A new introduction adds much to the well received first edition. The time for radical social change has never been so urgent, since the fate of an entire generation of young people, if not democracy itself, is at stake. Giroux argues that challenge gives new meaning to the importance of resistance, the relevance of pedagogy, and the significance of political agency.

    Giroux is a rebel! Notes from thesis: The logic of institutions is that they are aligned with government, and as long as this is the case, the bodies intersecting in the spaces will remain complicit (Giroux, 2008) Giroux (2008) demonstrates the connection of space and agency in the following: “In a society in which the public sphere is characterized by a culture of fear and public life has receded behind gated communities, a pervasive discourse of privatization coupled with the practice of brutaliza Giroux is a rebel! Notes from thesis: The logic of institutions is that they are aligned with government, and as long as this is the case, the bodies intersecting in the spaces will remain complicit (Giroux, 2008) Giroux (2008) demonstrates the connection of space and agency in the following: “In a society in which the public sphere is characterized by a culture of fear and public life has receded behind gated communities, a pervasive discourse of privatization coupled with the practice of brutalization embraces an utterly narrow and commodified definition of freedom and feeds a disinterest in politics while closing down any sense of responsibility for those who in a neoliberal capitalist society represent the losers, the unemployed, the incarcerated, the poor, the young, and the elderly.” (p. 594-595) Understanding how pedagogies work is critical in acquiring the means to challenge and speak back to the authoritarian discourse (Arendt, 1976, 1977) – “from a position of critical agency” (Giroux, 2008, p. 611). Public pedagogy is set on and distributed in the public sphere of institutionalized sites such as, but not limited to, educational and cultural establishments as well as media platforms (Giroux, 2008). The Anglo and Euro centric discourse of academia, media, social media, various institutions working within the funding of governmental as well as non-governmental organizations and United Nations platforms, sets the defining relationships between the “developing” vs. “the developed.” The language, from that viewpoint, is within the “impoverished vocabulary of privatization, individualism, and excessive materialism” and it does not encourage critique or the type of collective action that would change the comfort zone by which governments are in the service of investors (Giroux, 2008, p. 592).

    I thought there were too many "voices" in this one of other theorists that made his central ideas difficult to identify much less follow. While I've enjoyed reading about his ideas quoted by other people, either this wasn't the best book of his to read or I am really bad at reading theoretical non-fiction.
