New Book on Paulo Freire

Peter Mayo, who has written the definitive comparison of Paulo Freire and Antonio Gramsci has just released a new book: Liberating Praxis: Paulo Freire's Legacy for Radical Education and Politics (Praeger, Boulder, Co., 2004). I, for one, can't wait to read it. Peter, myself a several others formed a popular education study group (inspired by the Naming the Moment Project) in 1990 that met for a year. I have followed Peter's work since and have always found it a source of excellent learning and reflection. Peter and I were also part of the editorial team that put together a special issue of Convergence on Paulo Freire. Here's a report and review of Peter's new book (launched along with another interesting one) posted on the University of Malta's site: University Professors' New Books.
