Review quote

"With a radical pedagogy rooted in the global South which has increasing traction in education systems in the global North, development education has long deserved a comprehensive treatment that assesses the full breadth of its practice. This overdue collection is therefore most welcome and makes a passionate and persuasive case for more global learning in formal and informal education, particularly in the aftermath of the financial crisis which has brought greater poverty and inequality to the door of the global North. This text considers development education practice in a range of educational settings and analyses the policy context in which it is delivered. It is an essential guide to education practitioners committed to bringing transformative agendas to their teaching and learning" -Denis O'Hearn, Professor of Sociology, Binghamton University, New York
