Democratizing Education and Educating Democratic Citizens addresses the conceptualization of democracy and citizenship, reform efforts toward democratization in different societies, and education efforts to foster democratic citizens. These original essays are written from unique historical and national perspectives by an international panel of the most prominent comparative education scholars. This book honors the professional and personal commitment of Susanne Shafer, who passed away in 1997. During her career in social studies, foundations of education, and comparative education, she worked to promote social and civic commitment among youth in the United States and abroad.
