This book is no exception, presenting a coherent and wide-ranging rationale for human rights education, identifying and examining practical and ideological challenges to its implementation and providing a systematic analysis of its implications and its potential for transformative action in education. Focused primarily on human rights education in formal education, its potential audience includes teachers, teacher educators and student teachers. - Educational Review This book is a delight: readable, comprehensive, committed and stimulating.
