Summary

First published in Portuguese in 1968, Pedagogy of the Oppressed was translated and published in English in 1970. Paulo Freire's work has helped to empower countless people throughout the world and has taken on special urgency in the United States and Western Europe, where the creation of a permanent underclass among the underprivileged and minorities in cities and urban centers is ongoing.

This 50th anniversary edition includes an updated introduction by Donaldo Macedo, a new afterword by Ira Shor, and interviews with Marina Aparicio Barberán, Noam Chomsky, Ramon Flecha, Gustavo Fischman, Ronald David Glass, Valerie Kinloch, Peter Mayo, Peter McLaren, and Margo Okazawa-Rey to inspire a new generation of educators, students, and general audiences for years to come.

A must read for all educators

Amazing. the new foreword and interviews add a lot of depth. I would advise this for all teachers and students to help inform their learning processes.

Not easy listening

Parts of this book are written in very abstract terms. Hard enough to follow in a book, pretty hard to listen to. (I am a philosophy professor and I'm reading the book to prepare a course in philosophy of education, so it's not as if I'm unused to difficult texts).

Eye opening

Very good book, gives a great insight into ways that leaders and educators can help fix the inequality that burdens the world.
