'In these troubled times, Marla Morris's study shows how important intellectual work can be accomplished in the midst of oppressive and dysfunctional environments by adopting, whether by choice or circumstance, the role of Other. Morris shines light on our dark, showing how the trope of otherness can serve to repair our damaged psyches and our oppressed educational systems.' Alan A. Block, Professor of Education, University of Wisconsin-Stout
'As a Gentile academic I found Morris's discussion of Jewish 'Otherness' immensely helpful. For graduate students particularly, the sections on the history of psychoanalysis will be a special gift. Those of us teaching in the university will say 'Hooray!' for the Ginsbergian Howl! Marla Morris gives for the dystopic state of the contemporary academy. This book is also an important and timely example of interdisciplinary scholarship. Highly recommended.' David Geoffrey Smith, Professor and Director, International Forum on Education and Society, University of Alberta
