A volume in Education Policy in Practice: Critical Cultural StudiesSeries Editors Bradley A. U. Levinson, and Margaret Sutton, Indiana UniversityThis book explores the diversity of American roles in education for democracy cross-culturally, both within the UnitedStates and around the world. Cross-cultural engagement in education for democracy inevitably bears the impressions of eachculture involved and the dynamics among them. Even high-priority, well-funded U.S. government programs are neithermonolithic nor deterministic in their own right, but are rather reshaped, adapted to their contexts, and appropriated by theirpartners. These partners are sometimes called "recipients," a problematic label that gives the misleading impression thatpartners are relatively passive in the overall process.The authors pay close attention to the cultures, contexts, structures, people, and processes involved in education for democracy.Woven throughout this volume's qualitative studies are the notions that contacts between powers and cultures are complexand situated, that agency matters, and that local meanings play a critical role in the dynamic exchange of peoples andideas. The authors span an array of fields that concern themselves with understanding languages, cultures, institutions, andthe broad horizon of the past that shapes the present: history, anthropology, literacy studies, policy analysis, political science, and journalism.This collection provides a rich sampling of the diverse contexts and ways in which American ideas, practices, and policies ofeducation for democracy are spread, encountered, appropriated, rejected, or embraced around the world. This volume introduces concepts, identifies processes, notesobstacles and challenges, and reveals common themes that can help us to understand American influence on education for democracy more clearly, wherever it occurs.

In this important book, historians, lawyers, economists and writers come together to put a coherent case: that although the Irish economic collapse has resulted in national humiliation, renewed emigration and a decline in living standards for the majority of the population, there is still hope that the country can be reformed and renewed. Irish politicians offered the now notorious blanket guarantee to all the banks which had got in over their heads during the great property bubble - including one that had become little more than a criminal enterprise. A different set of politicians grimly enforces the consequences of that guarantee, locking an entire generation of Irish men and women into paying for the mistakes of greedy bankers and their corrupt friends in government. The energy of hope has to come from elsewhere. These essays demonstrate how simple measures and different economic and social policies could release that energy and fulfil the promise of an educated, literate and culturally vibrant people.
