Addresses what educators, young people, and concerned citizens can do to reclaim higher education from market-driven neoliberal ideologies.

Giroux exposes the corporate forces at play and charts a clear-minded and inspired course of action out of the shadows of market-driven education policy. Championing the youth around the globe who have dared to resist the bartering of their future, he calls upon public intellectuals—as well as all people concerned about the future of democracy—to speak out and defend the university as a site of critical learning and democratic promise.

What People Are Saying

“Professor Giroux has focused his keen intellect on the hostile corporate takeover of higher education in North America. . . . He is relentless in his defense of a society that requires its citizenry to place its cultural, political, and economic institutions in context so they can be interrogated and held truly accountable. We are fortunate to have such a prolific writer and deep thinker to challenge us all.” Karen Lewis, Emerita President, Chicago Teachers Union

"No one has been better than Henry Giroux at analyzing the many ways in which neoliberalism, with its vicious and predatory excesses, has damaged the American economy and undermined its democratic processes. Now, as Giroux brilliantly explains, it is threatening one of the nation’s proudest and most important achievements―its system of higher education.” Bob Herbert, Distinguished Senior Fellow at Demos and former op-ed columnist for the New York Times

“Henry Giroux remains the critical voice of a generation. . . . He dares us to reevaluate the significance of public pedagogy as integral to any viable notion of democratic participation and social responsibility. Anybody who is remotely interested in the plight of future generations must read this book.” Dr. Brad Evans, Director, Histories of Violence website
