Summary
  • Education in the Post-9/11 Decade is a collection of ten essays examining education--mostly higher education--as civic engagement. These essays are the finest works of scholarship on education published over the last decade in JAC, an award-winning journal of rhetoric, politics, and culture. The essays in Part 1 attempt to historicize higher education and to unpack many of its underlying dynamics. Part 2 examines emerging trends in the politics of education--trends that to the authors in this collection are alarming. Balancing the anxiety and seeming pessimism of Part 2 are the distinctly optimistic essays in Part 3, which collectively interject a note of hope for the future of education. Collectively, the essays in this volume analyze in a substantive and rigorous manner a number of key issues in the politics of education. This volume should be of great interest to university faculty and graduate students regardless of their disciplinary areas, and generally to anyone interested in the future of higher education in an increasingly corporatized academic setting.<br/>
