MEDIA REVIEWS

"A highly readable, well-theorized, and biting evaluation of the neoliberal-cum-Islamo-conservative reformation/reformulation of schooling and education in Turkey over the last 30 years. Its wide-reaching and trenchant analysis makes clear the importance of understanding and critiquing the neoliberal and neoconservative assault on public services, public sector workers, and education globally. In addition, it exposes the Islamicization of education and society in Turkey under the AKP government, belying Western approbation of Turkey's supposed 'moderate Islam.'" - Dave Hill, chief editor, Journal for Critical Education Policy Studies and visiting professor of Education at the Universities of Athens (Greece), Middlesex (England), and Limerick (Ireland)

"This is an important book that deserves serious attention, especially at this precipitous historical moment of the crisis of neoliberal capitalism. The authors sound a dire warning that, if not heeded, will sound the death knell for public education. Clearly what is happening in Turkey is a global problem that requires a global solution: the struggle for a socialist alternative to transnational capitalism." - Peter McLaren, professor in the Division of Urban Schooling, the Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, The University of California, Los Angeles, US
