Scholar, activist and educator Paulo Freire was one of the first thinkers to fully appreciate the relationships between education, politics, imperialism and liberation. This volume is a testament to the works of Paulo Freire in the field of education as well as the life of the man: a "story of courage, hardship, perseverance, and unyielding belief in the power of love". In this comprehensive collection, prominent intellectuals including Noam Chomsky and Donald Macedo reflect on Freire's "politics of liberation" and add important new dimensions to the revolutionary, innovative ideas that Freire bequeathed to a generation much in need.
