Review quote

..".provides examples of the struggles and hardships that teachers, as well as teacher educators, face in these trying times and also highlights the great potential and strength that teacher education has to offer ... the studies that are shared provide a window into the challenging yet rewarding world of teaching and teacher education." -- Journal of Education for Teaching "This is a truly engaging book--what a change from the literature in teacher education. Bullough uses historical analysis, empirical research, and deeply intellectual and ethical reflection to present the usefulness of small-scale local research in teacher education. This book should be read, carefully, by all those who treasure the process and work toward the improvement of teacher education." -- Virginia Richardson, editor of Handbook of Research on Teaching, Fourth Edition "Rich with meaning and ideas relevant to both historical and contemporary teacher education, Counternarratives should become a seminal text in and among teacher education dialogue and practice. Bullough has compiled a masterpiece with this work, and I applaud his efforts and contribution to the field." -- Thomas Nelson, editor of Teacher Education Quarterly "This book offers hope and renewal to teacher educators in these times of increased standardization, external controls, and neglect of the moral aspects of education. It reminds us of what is truly important in teaching and teacher education." -- Kenneth M. Zeichner, Hoefs-Bascom Professor of Teacher Education, University of Wisconsin-Madison "At a time when teaching and teacher education are undervalued and, in some quarters, poorly understood, Bullough reminds us all of the centrality of identity and the shaping factors that impact the journey of coming to know as a teacher and teacher educator." -- J. John Loughran, coeditor of Enacting a Pedagogy of Teacher Education: Values, Relationships, and Practices
