Book summary: This work explores various forms of oppression that plague contemporary society. Through the analyses and reflections of theorists and social activists - including Paulo Freire himself - "Politics of Liberation" brings together, under a common project of human liberation, critical voices from around the globe: Mexico, Guatemala, Britain, Canada, Brazil, Argentina, Australia, New Zealand and the United States. The essays argue that Freire's work offers an avenue out of the malaise of contemporary politics and culture. They place Freire "temporally" in relation to moments of modernity and postmodernity; "culturally" and "existentially" in relation to the First and Third Worlds and at the standpoint of indigenous peoples; "politically" in terms of his attention to the range of sites and dimensions of oppression and their relatedness; and "intellectually" in relation to the eclectic range of theories on which he draws. The book is a response to the current global crisis of solidarity among progressive and dissident intellectuals, educators and cultural workers.
