Rezensionen
"America on the Edge is an enormously important book - perhaps Giroux's most comprehensive and hard-hitting analysis of the juggernaut of cultural repression that distorts our lives as citizens and renders many of our children socially expendable. Written with a potent mix of shrewd analysis and passionate morality, this dynamic and sophisticated work should stir a social outcry, particularly in the threatened realm of academia. I hope it's widely read." - Jonathan Kozol

'These essays are Giroux at his best, analyzing and criticizing the changing organizations of power in the United States and their effects on the larger world, and calling out to anyone who will listen that that world is possible.' - Lawrence Grossberg, author of Caught in the Crossfire: Kids, Politics and America's Future

'Here Henry Giroux is at his most lucid, stripping the veil of illusion to reveal the multiple hypocrisies at the core of contemporary American society. His solutions to this devastating moment rest in a deep commitment to education, critical thinking, and the potential to revitalize democracy within an energized public sphere." - Carol Becker, Dean of Faculty, School of the Art Institute of Chicago, author of Surpassing the Spectacle: Global Transformations and the Changing Politics of Art
