This volume brings together researchers who enrich the discourse about citizenship education in numerous ways: they cross disciplines, expand pedagogical models, encompass studies on both the young and the old, and report on a wide range of countries. -- Judith Torney-Purta, Professor of Human Development, University of Maryland A well written, topically balanced, analytically inclusive, and stylistically accessible work that adds much to the literature of global citizenship education and general comparative and international education. It should benefit students and scholars in education and in the general social sciences, and it could be used as a primary or supplementary textbook in both advanced undergraduate and graduate classes. It should also achieve a wide public readership, and with the widening discussion around the topic, this book will present a selectively reliable interpretation of the newly emerging discourses in the case. Comparative Education Review, May 2009 The contents and methods to develop democratic citizens are as varied as the understandings of democratic citizenship itself. Reinmagining Civic Education for a Changing World provides a timely and important contribution to the study of citizenship education and political socialization. With its impressive international scope, careful examination of the particularities of local cultures and actors, and a comprehensive approach that includes formal and non-formal educational settings as well as policy analysis, this book reinvigorates the field and appeals to a wide audience. -- Daniel Schugurensky, University of Toronto
