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

45 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and Korean and held by 3,997 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

America's education deficit and the war on youth by Henry A Giroux( )

10 editions published in 2013 in English and held by 1,080 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
Theory and resistance in education : a pedagogy for the opposition by Henry A Giroux( Book )

42 editions published between 1983 and 2011 in English and Spanish and held by 1,075 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

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. --Publisher description

Schooling and the struggle for public life : democracy's promise and education's challenge by Henry A Giroux( )

15 editions published between 2005 and 2016 in English and held by 1,016 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This book examines the relationship between democracy and schooling and argues that schools are one of the few spheres left where youth can learn the knowledge and skills necessary to become engaged, critical citizens. Now only is the legacy of democracy addressed through the work of John Dewey and others, but the democratic possibilities of schooling are analyzed through a range of issues extending from the politics of teacher authority to the importance of student voices. These issues have only become more vital in an era of neoliberalism and "smaller government," as Giroux discusses at length in this new updated edition."--Jacket

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

16 editions published between 2011 and 2015 in English and held by 876 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

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 807 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
Stealing innocence : youth, corporate power, and the politics of culture by Henry A Giroux( Book )

21 editions published between 2000 and 2001 in English and held by 799 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Stealing Innocence is a methodically designed portrait of the increasing elimination of childhood for modern American youth. Giroux, a prolific social critic regarding issues of the late twentieth century, analyzes the proselytizing of corporations toward children. In the first half of the book, he uses the vivid imagery of beauty pageants for young girls, the onset of the visual appeal of the "heroin chic" look by Calvin Klein and other fashion industry leaders, and corporate logo placement in the school systems. The use of secondhand sources helps Giroux prove his point that children today are overinundated with outside influences that coerce young people to face adulthood too early in their lifetimes, thereby forcing traditional childhood concerns to the wayside. In the second half of the book, he looks to social theorists Antonio Gramsci, Paolo Freire, and Stuart Hall to demonstrate the potential to return to earlier methods of raising children. Although at times Giroux's words may seem dense, his ideas and examples are clear."-- Julia Glynn (Booklist)

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

17 editions published between 2006 and 2016 in English and Italian and held by 769 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

Schooling and the struggle for public life : critical pedagogy in the modern age by Henry A Giroux( Book )

22 editions published between 1988 and 2012 in Spanish and English and held by 709 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
Fugitive cultures : race, violence, and youth by Henry A Giroux( Book )

17 editions published between 1996 and 2012 in English and held by 702 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."
