Edited by Paul R. Carr and Brad J. Porfilio. New York; London: Routledge, 2012

“Any activist, student or academic working in the areas of peace, education, sociology, social justice or anti-imperialism — or anyone excited about the current world-wide push-back against the forces of oppression (neo-liberalism, authoritarianism, sexism, racism and homophobia) — would be remiss not to carefully read and consider the important thoughts and analyses proffered in this strikingly important volume!” — Marc Pruyn, Senior Lecturer, Monash University.
