This volume surveys the new global landscape for democratic civic education. Rooted in qualitative researc, the contributors explore the many ways that notions of democracy and citizenship have been implemented in recent education policy, curriculum, and classroom practice around the world. From Indonesia to the Spokane Reservation and El Salvador to Estonia, these chapters reveal a striking diversity of approaches to political socialization in varying cultural and institutional contexts. By bringing to bear the methodological, conceptual and theoretical perspectives of qualitative research, this book adds important new voices to one of educationOs most critical debates: how to form democratic citizens in a changing world.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This volume brings together researchers who enrich the discourse about citizenship education in numerous ways: they cross disciplines, expand pedagogical models, encompass studies on both the young and the old, and report on a wide range of countries. -- Judith Torney-Purta, professor of human development, University of Maryland
A well written, topically balanced, analytically inclusive, and stylistically accessible work that adds much to the literature of global citizenship education and general comparative and international education. It should benefit students and scholars in education and in the general social sciences, and it could be used as a primary or supplementary textbook in both advanced undergraduate and graduate classes. It should also achieve a wide public readership, and with the widening discussion around the topic, this book will present a selectively reliable interpretation of the newly emerging discourses in the case. * Comparative Education Review, May 2009 *
The contents and methods to develop democratic citizens are as varied as the understandings of democratic citizenship itself. Reinmagining Civic Education for a Changing World provides a timely and important contribution to the study of citizenship education and political socialization. With its impressive international scope, careful examination of the particularities of local cultures and actors, and a comprehensive approach that includes formal and non-formal educational settings as well as policy analysis, this book reinvigorates the field and appeals to a wide audience. -- Daniel Schugurensky, University of Arizona
