The mouse that roared : Disney and the end of innocence by Henry A Giroux( Book )

35 editions published between 1999 and 2012 in English and Korean and held by 2,253 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Today, cultural practices and institutions shape nearly every aspect of our lives. Henry A. Giroux takes up this issue by looking at the world's most influential corporation. He explores the diverse ways in which the Disney Corporation has become a political force in shaping images of public memory, producing children as consuming subjects, and legitimating ideological positions that constitute a deeply conservative and disturbing view of the roles imparted to children and adults alike. Giroux shows how Disney attempts to hide behind a cloak of innocence and entertainment, while simultaneously exercising its influence as a major force on both global economics and cultural learning."--Jacket
Theory and resistance in education : a pedagogy for the opposition by Henry A Giroux( Book )

38 editions published between 1983 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 1,069 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Obra básica del pensamiento educativo crítico contemporáneo, dice la profesora Alicia de Alba en el prefacio a esta edición. Y así lo confirma Paulo Freire en la presentación del libro, fundándose en una reformulación de la teoría crítica frankfurtiana (en el sentido de una reevaluación del papel de la cultura frente al poder) y criticando las tesis de Althusser y Bourdieu sobre el carácter dependiente y reproductor de la escuela. Giroux prefiere el neomarxismo de Willis, Hebbige y Corrigan que propone una dialéctica de acomodación y resistencia de la escuela a la imposición reproductora represiva del Estado

Education and the crisis of public values : challenging the assault on teachers, students, & public education by Henry A Giroux( Book )

15 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and held by 861 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines American society's shift away from democratic public values, the ensuing move toward a market-driven mode of education, and the last decade's growing social disinvestment in youth. The author discusses the number of ways that the ideal of public education as a democratic public sphere has been under siege, including full-fledged attacks by corporate interests on public school teachers, schools of education, and teacher unions. It also reveals how a business culture cloaked in the guise of generosity and reform has supported a charter school movement that aims to dismantle public schools in favor of a corporate-friendly privatized system. The book encourages educators to become public intellectuals, willing to engage in creating a formative culture of learning that can nurture the ability to defend public and higher education as a general good- one crucial to sustaining a critical citizenry and a democratic society. -- Back Cover
Popular culture, schooling, and everyday life( Book )

Stealing innocence : youth, corporate power, and the politics of culture by Henry A Giroux( Book )

16 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 790 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Continuing his ongoing and social critique, Henry Giroux now looks at the way corporate culture is encroaching on the lives of children by exploring three myths prevalent in our society: that the triumph of democracy is related to the triumph of the market; that children are unaffected by power and politics; that teaching and learning are no longer linked to improving the world. Looking at childhood beauty pageants, school shootings and the omnipresent nihilistic chic of advertising, Giroux paints a disturbing picture of the world surrounding our children. Ultimately, he turns to the work of Antonio Gramsci, Paulo Freire and Stuart Hall for lessons about how we can reinstitute a realistic childhood for our children

11 editions published between 2003 and 2006 in English and held by 727 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Henry Giroux continues his critique of American culture and the way it impinges on the lives of our children. This time, Giroux goes further, looking at the "Bush Restoration" years, the attacks of September 11th 2001 and the way the world has been transformed for our children and young adults
Schooling and the struggle for public life : critical pedagogy in the modern age by Henry A Giroux( Book )

17 editions published between 1988 and 2006 in Spanish and English and held by 720 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

El autor propone en este libro una teoría y una práctica de la educación que una la enseñanza a la investigación para una forma de democracia radical y concreta. Siguiendo el pensamiento europeo -en particular la teoría crítica social- y a los reconstruccionistas norteamericanos del decenio de 1930, lo mismo que al feminismo contemporáneo y a la teología de la liberación, el autor va más allá de los análisis oscurantistas y de condena ofrecidos por derecha e izquierda. Clama, en cambio, por un lenguaje de esperanza y posibilidades que pueda ayudar a transformar tanto la enseñanza como la vida pública. El alegato del autor está cimentado en la contenciosa historia de la teoría de la educación del siglo XX -desde la mirada emancipatoria de la ciudadanía defendida por los reconstruccionistas sociales, hasta el vuelo de la educación ciudadana de los años ochenta. Los reformadores de ahora han variado el discurso de la enseñanza a las necesidades del mercado de trabajo, las exigencias de a
Take back higher education : race, youth, and the crisis of democracy in the post-Civil Rights Era by Henry A Giroux( Book )

16 editions published between 2004 and 2015 in English and held by 710 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this new book, Giroux and Giroux argue that if higher education is going to meet the challenges of a democratic future, it will have to confront neoliberalism, racism, and the shredding of the social contract. In part, this means reclaiming education as crucial to the project of democratization and viewing equality and social justice as fundamental to civic education. It also means providing the conditions for educators to become public intellectuals actively working to link their teaching to broader social issues aimed at constructing a new, inclusive, democratic social order."--Jacket
Channel surfing : race talk and the destruction of today's youth by Henry A Giroux( Book )

19 editions published between 1997 and 2010 in English and held by 702 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Surfing from one channel of communication to the next, cultural theorist Henry Giroux builds a fascinating, complex web of associations among film characters, tarnished real-life teen idols, and sexualized presentations of young clothing models. He goes on to show how this barrage of media images sends a message that sells our children short by damning them to the preconceived role of alienated outcast. Channel Surfing, Henry Giroux's most fascinating and intriguing book yet, is sure to create controversy and debate at the same time that it calls for a more ethical approach to representations of our children and their future
Fugitive cultures : race, violence, and youth by Henry A Giroux( Book )

17 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 678 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This book examines the racist and sexist assault on today's youth which is being played out in the realms of popular and children's culture. The book interrogates the aesthetic of violence in a number of public arenas--talk radio, Disney animation, and in such films as "Pulp Fiction,""Kids,""Slackers," and "Juice,"--and challenges cultural workers and other progressives to help reverse the attack on those who are most powerless in American society, children and adolescents. The book, while affirming that many groups of youth in this country are at risk, aims to reclaim the importance of critical pedagogy as an eminently political discourse and practice. Pointing out that cultural studies is one of the few fields that provides an interdisciplinary approach to youth cultures and popular culture, the book argues for making cultural studies a primary area through which to analyze how youth as a social category is constructed within various contexts and spheres of popular culture. Chapters in the book are as follows: (1) "Race, Violence, and Children's Culture"; (2) "Public Intellectuals and Populist Persuasions"; and (3) "The Way Things Ought Not to Be: Race and National Identity." (Nka)

America on the edge : Henry Giroux on politics, culture, and education by Henry A Giroux( Book )

16 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in English and Italian and held by 295 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

For more than 20 years Henry Giroux has challenged readers to address the political exploitation and manipulation of American youth. Now, this compelling new book offers a comprehensive selection of Giroux¿s best works. From his most influential classics to new, never before published essays, America on the Edge offers an overview of Giroux's philosophies throughout his career. From his classic subjects, such as education and democracy and media and youth culture, to revolutionary new views on terrorism, globalization, and morality, this book is essential for all Giroux fans and educators alike. Henry Giroux provides a series of brilliant and provocative essays on the rise of authoritarianism in America, the rise of religious fundamentalism, the crisis of youth, the militarizing of public space, the politics of the Abu Ghraib prison scandal, the rise of the corporate university, the rise of Orwellian newspeak in the media, the emergence of a hard-boiled masculinity in popular culture, and what it means to reclaim hope in dark times. These essays combine important social issues with an accessible and clear language of historical understanding, critique, and possibility. Giroux argues that the United States is in the midst of a political crisis that is slowly undermining the foundation of democratic politics, culture, and education. He also argues that the crisis of politics is matched by a crisis of imagination and that if democracy is going to survive it is imperative to both rethink the nature of democracy while refashioning a new political language and cultural politics capable of both stopping the current turn toward authoritarianism and reclaiming the possibilities of a substantive democracy
America's education deficit and the war on youth by Henry A Giroux( Book )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and Undetermined and held by 290 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

America's latest war, according to renowned social critic Henry Giroux, is a war on youth. While this may seem counterintuitive in our youth-obsessed culture, Giroux lays bare the grim reality of how our educational, social, and economic institutions continually fail young people. Their systemic failure is the result of what Giroux identifies as ""four fundamentalisms"": market deregulation, patriotic and religious fervor, the instrumentalization of education, and the militarization of society. We see the consequences most plainly in the decaying education system: schools are increasingly desi
