This collection of essays by Antonia Darder engages a variety of political questions rooted within the contentious terrain of culture and power in the United States. Divided into seven sections that focus on biculturalism, racism, culture and schooling, language rights, Latino issues, the politics of the body, and a public pedagogy of dissent, the essays forcefully speak to the multiple ways in which the dominant culture shapes and perpetuates widespread inequalities and social exclusions, at the expense of oppressed populations. Spanning twenty years, this timely collection not only provides deeply unique political insights on important theoretical and practical concerns, but also offers the reader a historical glimpse into the literary evolution of one of the foremost radical education scholars of our time. Along with the intellectual ingenuity of her scholarly arguments, Darder beautifully weaves each section together with her poems of dissent. A Dissident Voice should be read by every student, professor, administrator and educated reader interested in alternative voices in education.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"`A Dissident Voice' builds on some of the most important traditions in critical pedagogy, post-colonial theory, and identity politics and in doing so challenges with great insight the official scripts of power and education that have emerged in the last thirty years. This is an important work and deserves the widest possible attention." (Henry A. Giroux, Global Television Network Chair Professor English and Cultural Studies Deptement, McMaster University)
"Antonia Darder offers a new and multi-dimensional perspective on the challenges of contemporary education and society. Only an educator with a profound understanding of of working class communities of color could provide such an insightful and caring discussion. In `A Dissident Voice', she details the pursuit for democratic schooling that connects educators and students to the larger struggle for human liberation and reminds us that `Imagining justice requires an ability to rethink the world anew'." (Iris Morales, Puerto Rican activist and filmmaker `!Palante, Siempre, Palante! The Young Lords')
"Brilliant, powerful, courageous and compassionate. The body of work presented in this volume embodies of all of these traits and many more. For years Antonia Darder has used her scholarship and her voice to speak out against injustice and to express the pain and suffering of those who have been marginalized and silenced. Hers is a message of hope and inspiration, buttressed by an indomitable belief that resistance is both possible and essential. Venceremos." (Pedro A. Noguera, Peter L. Agnew Professor of Education, Steinhardt School of Culture, Education and Development, Executive Director, Metropolitan Center for Urban Education, New York University)
