When "Ideology and Curriculum" was first published in 1979 it was quickly established as a path breaking statement on the relationship between cultural and economic power in education. It has been translated into many languages including Chinese, Japanese, Korean, Spanish, Portuguese, and Greek, and it has had a profound impact on the debates about education and democracy in many nations. Most recently, it has been named one of the 20 most influential volumes in the history of western education.
To celebrate the 25th anniversary of its publication, Michael W. Apple has thoroughly updated his influential text, and written a new preface. The preface both situates the book in its larger context historically and currently, and points to the material and events that help solve a number of the questions and issues of the relationship between education and differential power that the book raises. The new edition also includes an extended interview circa 2001, in which Apple relates the critical agenda outlined in "Ideology and Curriculum" to the more contemporary conservative climate. Finally, a new chapter titled "Pedagogy, Patriotism and Democracy: Ideology and Education After 9/11" is also included. All in all, this highly anticipated anniversary edition will firmly situate" Ideology and Curriculum" as one of the most important education books of our time.
