"I highly recommend this book to anyone interested in critical pedagogy and democratic education."-"Canadian Woman Studies "This timely collection of essays pushes the current equality and difference debates to a new plane. It creates an alternative to the polemics of political correctness, particularly in universities, by foregrounding issues to which progressive educators ought to pay attention.."-Roxana Ng, Department of Sociology in Education, University of Toronto ""Dangerous Territories intends to trouble the State, queer the academy, and decenter the very colonialisms that surround and organize our classrooms. It brilliantly disrupts the Left-Right binary, complicates the notion of "backlash," and excavates notions of nation, immigrant, "race," and ethnicity....This volume is simply a gift of intellectual reflection, community, and conscience to those of us putting out fires on our campuses, in our schools and beyond.."-Michelle Fine, Department of Psychology, City University of New York, Graduate Center "This book gives us an ingenious interdisciplinary look at the legal, political, and social dilemmas that so powerfully affect educational institutions at the troubled end of the 20th Century.."-Regina Graycar, Dunhill Madden Butler Chair of Women and the Law, University of Sydney, Australia ""Dangerous Territories provides stimulating resources for developing and sustaining a broad vision of radical democracy and how to achieve it in higher education in these days of new forms of both right-wing politics and liberatory social movements....There are insights and strategies here for every teacher, scholar and researcher in highereducation."-Sandra Harding, University of California, Los Angeles
