I would like to thank Gayatri Spivak, Jacques Derrida, Peter McLaren, Henry Giroux, John Willinksy, Roger Simon, Nicholas Burbules, Doug Kellner, Michael Apple, Patti Lather, Bill Pinar, Denise Egéa-Kuehne, Jo-Anne Dillabough, Cameron McCarthy, and Greg Dimitriadis, who have participated in this anthology, for their support of this project and for the gen-erous contributions of their texts to the collection. I have learned much from their work and have been inspired by the gift of their friendship.
Heidi Freund has provided valuable insight into the task of editing this book as well as tremendous reserves of patience while it was transformed into its present form. Thank you.
I would like to express my gratitude to Elefteria Balomenos for reading portions of the manuscript and for assisting in the writing of the introduction. This book would not have been possible without a fellowship from the Social Sciences and Humanities Research Council of Canada and a Connaught Grant from the University of Toronto.
