Editorial Reviews

"Henry Giroux's new book is brilliant and fascinating. A valuable instrument in sorting through the indoctrinational labyrinth of our culture. I hope that it's widely read."-Jonathan Kozol, author of "Savage Inequalities ""Disturbing Pleasures rewrites the relationship between pedagogy and popular culture in a unique and original way. . . "Disturbing Pleasures is a book that combines the insights of critical pedagogy, popular culture and cultural studies by bridging the relationhip bwetween theory and practice in aseries of analyses. Being one of the few books to expand the notion of critical pedagogy to the sphere of the popular as it works in and out of schools, and by both defining and demonstarating how critical pedagogy can be applied to cultural texts, this book will prove invaluable to a vast array of educators."-Pepi Leistyna, "Harvard Educational Review "Once again, Henry Giroux presents a thoughtful piece on critical pedagogy, schooling and popular culture. . . a penetrating analysis. . .."-"The Journal of Educational Thought "["Disturbing Pleasures] provides an insight into the ways on which professors, school teachers and other cultural workers can appropriate a pedagogy of cultural studies."-"Leisure, Recreation and Touring Abstract
