Daisaku Ikeda (b. 1928) is an international Buddhist leader, peacebuilder, prolific author, and the founder of the secular Soka kindergartens, elementary and secondary schools, women’s college and universities in seven countries across Asia and the Americas. He has emerged as an important educational philosopher and practitioner whose perspectives on dialogue, value-creation (soka), global citizenship, and the deep inner transformation he calls "human revolution" have informed the curriculum and instruction of thousands of teachers not only at the Soka schools, but also at numerous non-Soka schools and universities around the world. This volume brings together, for the first time in English, international scholars’ empirical and theoretical analyses of Ikeda’s contributions to language and education in a global context. This book was awarded the Critics Choice Book Award by the American Educational Studies Association in 2015. This book was originally published as a special issue of Critical Inquiry in Language Studies.

In 1999 the UN instituted the Program of Action on a Culture of Peace, leading to the Declaration of the International Decade for the Promotion of a Culture of Peace and Non-Violence for the Children of the World 2001-2010. This represented a paradigm shift away from the prevailing conceptualization of peace as ‘the absence of war’ to one of ‘creating cultures of peace’, and indicated a significant opening for peace educators and the expansion of their mission and field in peace research and scholarship. This book seeks to address several questions about the emergence, present state, and future of the field of peace education, and to ground the definition of the discipline in its origins – origins deeply set in informal grassroots movements of concerned citizens, faith-based communities, and professional organizations who work for peace, as well as those working in formal institutions. These origins are vital in imparting identity, and in nurturing the current growing collective consciousness that combines the academic discipline and the worldwide peace movement – a collective that can unify, fuel, and inspire dialogue among scholars, researchers, activists, educators, government leaders, and the myriad of individuals committed to creating cultures of peace throughout the world. This book was originally published as a special issue of the Journal of Peace Education.

The prominent Buddhist religious leader and advocate for peace, Daisaku Ikeda, has placed dialogue at the centre of his efforts towards securing global justice and conflict resolution. However, far from constituting abstract plans for the future of the world, Ikeda's dialogues represent very concrete and focused activity. He concentrates on one significant individual (such as Joseph Rotblat, Linus Pauling, Mikhail Gorbachev and Tu Weiming) at a time, or sometimes small groups, in order to attempt the transformation of thinking and society through intense discussion. This book offers detailed exploration of this crucial aspect of Ikeda's philosophy of peace. Contributors examine topics such as : the background to Ikeda's use of dialogue, specifically in the field of education; and dialogue in relation to the abolition of nuclear weapons. Ikeda's concept of dialogue emerges as a paradoxical movement towards common ground based on a deep respect for differences. This study will appeal to students of peace, politics and modern Buddhism.

The first volume to focus on the intersections of militarization, corporations, and education, Education as Enforcement exposed the many ways schooling has become the means through which the expansion of global corporate power are enforced. Since publication of the first edition, these trends have increased to disturbing levels as a result of the extensive militarization of civil society, the implosion of the neoconservative movement, and the financial meltdown that radically called into question the basic assumptions undergirding neoliberal ideology. An understanding of the enforcement of these corporate economic imperatives remains imperative to a critical discussion of related militarized trends in schools, whether through accountability and standards, school security, or other discipline based reforms. Education as Enforcement elaborates upon the central arguments of the first edition and updates readers on how recent events have reinforced their continued original relevance. In addition to substantive updates to several original chapters, this second edition includes a new foreword by Henry Giroux, a new introduction, and four new chapters that reveal the most contemporary expressions of the militarization and corporatization of education. New topics covered in this collection include zero-tolerance, foreign and second language instruction in the post-9/11 context, the rise of single-sex classrooms, and the intersection of the militarization and corporatization of schools under the Obama administration.

Makiguchi Tsunesaburo (1871-1944) was a Japanese schoolteacher, principal, educational philosopher, and Buddhist war resister. The progenitor of the value-creating (soka) pedagogy that inspires thousands of teachers worldwide and informs the network of 15 Soka schools, universities, and a women’s college across seven countries in Asia and the Americas, Makiguchi has emerged as an important figure in international education, curriculum studies, and instructional practice. Few educators in the global academy, however, know of Makiguchi’s extensive and lifelong work in language education. This edited volume, including a translation of an early Makiguchi essay heretofore unavailable in English, presents theoretical and empirical analyses of Makiguchi’s perspectives and practices relative to language, identity, and education in historical and contemporary contexts. First published as a special issue of Journal of Language, Identity and Education, this volume includes a new preface and three new chapters. Makiguchi Tsunesaburo in the Context of Language, Identity, and Education advances the field of Makiguchi studies and is indispensable for scholars and practitioners engaged in language and literacy education, international perspectives in education, and curriculum theorizing.

From a Japanese word meaning “to create value,” this book presents a fresh spiritual perspective to question the ultimate purpose of education. Mixing American pragmatism with Buddhist philosophy, the goal of Soka education is the lifelong happiness of the learner. Rather than offering practical classroom techniques, this book speaks to the emotional heart of both the teacher and student. With input from philosophers and activists from several cultures, it advances the conviction that the true purpose of education is to create a peaceful world and to develop the individual character of each student in order to achieve that goal.

This book introduces readers to the Buddhist-based philosophy of education of Daisaku Ikeda. Ikeda's philosophy of education offers human revolution, value creation, and dialogue as counterweights to the violence lurking in today's classrooms.

The notion of resistance resides as a deep-seated premise underpinning the democratic foundation of the United States. Given the distinctive standing of public education in the U.S., this book explores the multiple roles---and numerous contexts---that resistance plays in contemporary educational settings. Resistance in education creates, or reflects, the multiple counter-discourses that arise to challenge the one or more dominant discourses in any given educational setting. There is potency in the plurality of the varied and sometimes controversial arguments provided by each essay in this volume, which should be read by everyone interested in the concept within the framework of education today. "It is possible to say that resistance in education has always been resisted; the point, of course, is who is doing the resisting. Why they are resisting, what they are resisting, and whose interests are being served by these acts of resistance. David M. Moss and Terry A. Osborn's provocative collection of essays on educational resistance gives new scope and meaning to the term `resistance' in the context of today's challenges to and on behalf of social justice education. It is an important contribution to the field of critical education."---Peter McLaren, Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, University of California, Los Angeles
