This collection of essays, poems, and reflections by scholars, public intellectuals, artists, and community activists (as well as those whose work intersects with all of these categories) constitutes a landmark achievement in critical pedagogy and social justice education. Edited by two leaders whose work spans both academic and grassroots communities, Radical Imagine-Nation was conceived during a time of political turmoil both nationally and internationally, a time when freedom and democracy seemed out of reach for millions around the world.

«“Peter McLaren and Suzanne SooHoo’s Radical Imagine-Nation: Public Pedagogy & Praxis is the exact right book at the exact right time. They have assembled a stellar collective of critical scholars assembled around their ‘shared refusal to accept the world, with all its pain and ugliness, as it is.’ Together, they take seriously their responsibility to put forward their imaginings for a different future. A soon to be classic as well as required reading for scholars, activists, students and public intellectuals alike.”—Sandy Grande, Connecticut College; Author of Red Pedagogy»

«“During education’s 40-year descent into hell, there has been one clear and consistent countervailing force. With its origin in the work of Paulo Freire, critical pedagogy has provided a singular light for hope. Peter McLaren and Suzanne SooHoo’s collection of essays in Radical Imagine-Nation: Public Pedagogy & Praxis brings together some of the longtime and most influential voices in critical education theory with some of the most promising new voices to create a revitalized critical pedagogy to meet the latest and most serious threat yet to public education and democracy. In these darkest of dark times, this collection provides a needed direction for resistance and renews our faith in the possibility of education to transform our selves and our world.”—Richard Quantz, Miami University of Ohio»

«“Radical Imagine-Nation includes a truly stellar, globally renowned, co-operative cast of critical educators and community activists. This is indeed, an incredible, radical, vibrant roar of imaginative hope and commitment. It is a thunderous counterblast to contemporary dystopia and mean-minded right and far right violence. It effectively sabotages contemporary nihilist, dystopian, and cruel developments in neoliberal and Alt.Right capitalism. This cast of Critical Warriors rehydrates democracy, propounds radical equality and cooperation, and imagines a future of hope, justice and critical activism.”—Dave Hill, Universities of Middlesex, Athens and Anglia Ruskin»

«“Radical Imagine-Nation is an essential read for critical scholars, graduate students and others who are committed to building the world free from hate, injustice, and oppression. The volume showcases the intellectual work of leading progressive scholars across the globe whose contributions collectively capture what steps are necessary to remake schools and our social world.”—Brad J. Porfilio, Director of the Doctorate in Educational Leadership for Social Justice (ELSJ), CSU East Bay»

«“The disconnect between the rhetoric and reality of democracy as well as traditional discourses of equality, justice, rights in North America is a direct challenge to our work as critical educators. We can no longer rely on the old tropes of democracy and freedom that have dominated the curriculum and classroom discourse, indeed to do so is to sell students a lie about history and contemporary life. Radical Imagine-Nation: Public Pedagogy & Praxis provides us with the new imaginaries we need for thinking about and enacting an education in the public interest. This collection challenges us to rethink our work in response to the rising tide of authoritarianism and gives us a language of possibilities to radically re-imagine education and society.”—E. Wayne Ross, University of British Columbia»

«“Featuring a dazzling array of world-renowned critical scholars and public intellectuals, Radical Imagine-Nation: Public Pedagogy & Praxis is (sadly) precisely the book we urgently need in these dark days of struggle.”—Marc Spooner, Associate Professor, Faculty of Education, University of Regina»
