"In spite of historians' growing interest inthe educational experiences of marginalpopulations, virtually no book exclusively focuses on this theme. Thankfully, with the publication of this wonderful collection of essaysthis is no longer the case. This volume isa splendid contribution to thefield of educational history." - David Wallace Adams, Author ofEducation for Extinction: American Indians andthe Boarding School Experience, 1875-1828
"At a time when educators are struggling with questions about diversity and inclusion, this collection provides a wealth of fresh insights and new perspectives about the educational history of marginalized groups. The compelling case studies that make up this book challenge and complicate the conventional wisdom about these topics and undoubtedly will provoke lively debates." - Jeffrey Mirel, David L. Angus Collegiate Chair of Education, Professor of History, University of Michigan
"This is an important and timely book. Tamura and her contributors brilliantly provide new insight into the issues of marginality, agency and power. Utilizing a broad definition of education that includes institutions outside of schools, these essays provide us with a wider vision of discrimination that goes beyond race and includes people with disabilities as well as people of diverse sexual orientations. What a wonderful and well-researched book." - Linda M. Perkins, Associate University Professor and Director of Applied Women s Studies, Claremont Graduate University
