Welcome to the new Palgrave Macmillan Education Catalogue. Palgrave Macmillan publishes cutting-edge books that engage in the interrelated issues of gender, race, sexuality, ethnicity, social context, and leadership building from early childhood development through to higher education. Our books focus on the intersection of education policy, issues of diversity and equity, media and communication studies on an international and comparative scale. Among the leading titles for 2009 is Critical Race Theory and Education: A Marxist Response by Mike Cole, which will have international appeal for any individuals or institutions that are in serious dialogue with race theory, neo-liberalism, and Marxism. We are also pleased to be bringing out a new paperback edition of Mark Bracher’s Radical Pedagogy, which continues to be a timely resource as new education reforms are introduced. Also featured is Identity in Education, the second title in our “Future of Minority Studies” series. This collection, edited by Susan Sánchez-Casal and Amie A. Macdonald, brings together leading scholars to consider ways to productively engage identity in the classroom and at the institutional level, as a means of working toward racial democracy in higher education. In addition to these series, we are excited to encourage submissions to series such as “Education, Politics, and Public Life,” edited by Henry and Susan Giroux; “Postcolonial Studies in Education,” edited by Peter Mayo, Antonia Darder, and Anne Hickling-Hudson; and “International & Development Education,” edited by John Hawkins and James Jacob. Please visit to find out even more about our 2010 publishing program. If you would like to submit a proposal or you have an idea for a new publication, please do contact us.

John S. Levin, Bank of America Professor of Education Leadership, Graduate School of Education, University of California, USA

‘Most of the literature on higher education focuses on well-prepared students attending selective four-year colleges and universities. The real battle for educational opportunity and for social justice will be won or lost, however, in the two-year public community colleges, and this splendid study is essential reading for anyone who would understand the struggle faced by disadvantaged students, most of whom depend on community colleges for further education. Levin’s work, based on sound conceptual theory and detailed interview findings, joins the relatively modest literature of quality that provides valuable insight into the successes and failures of this vital segment of American higher education.’ - David W. Breneman, University Professor and Dean, Newton and Rita Meyers Professor in Economics of Education, University of Virginia, USA Focusing on non-traditional students in higher education institutions, this new book from renowned scholar John Levin examines the extent to which community college students receive justice both within their institution and as an outcome of their education.
