Among the most crucial ways to understand the complex connections between education and differential power is to examine the politics of knowledge. How is the state perceived in the US? What role does it play? How is it challenged? What are the contradictory power relations within and between the state and civil society in the US? To answer these questions, Michael Apple has assembled established and emerging scholars to show how political institutions - including educational systems - regulate knowledge and legitimate certain versions of culture. This book represents a widening and deepening of foregoing scholarship, and its new understanding of power relations offers a means toward critical policies and practices, and toward more effective social movements in the US.
