The mouse that roared : Disney and the end of innocence by Henry A Giroux( Book )
29 editions published between 1999 and 2010 in English and held by 2,682 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

Take back higher education : race, youth, and the crisis of democracy in the post-Civil Rights Era by Henry A Giroux( Book )
12 editions published between 2004 and 2006 in English and held by 1,000 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."--BOOK JACKET

Education and the crisis of public values : challenging the assault on teachers, students, & public education by Henry A Giroux( Book )
12 editions published between 2011 and 2012 in English and Undetermined and held by 737 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

Schooling and the struggle for public life : critical pedagogy in the modern age by Henry A Giroux( Book )
11 editions published between 1988 and 2006 in English and Spanish and held by 716 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

11 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 608 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
