Review:
Most of us who spend our lives as educators are committed to instilling within our students the capacity to think for themselves . Teaching Defiance is a book that shares these commitments. ( Teaching Theology and Religion, 06/13/08)

"Newman reminds us that times like these call for defiance, and that this is a crucial role of the activist educator." (Labor Studies Review)

From the Back Cover:
Praise for Teaching Defiance

"A book that may well become iconic in the field, the kind of text that will cause major reverberations in the field and that people will be talking about for years to come . . . . Put simply, there is no one else in adult education who writes as powerfully and lyrically as Mike Newman."
Stephen Brookfield, distinguished professor, University of St. Thomas, Minneapolis–St. Paul, Minnesota; author, The Power of Critical Theory

"This tautly written, gutsy polemic from an engaged and committed teacher is a must–read for anyone who believes that education should make a difference not just in their students but in the world."
Laurent A. Parks Daloz, senior fellow, The Whidbey Institute; author, Mentor: Guiding the Journey of Adult Learners

"Through stories, role play, metaphors, problem solving, and negotiation strategies, Newman demonstrates how ′bold and decisive action′ is not to be shunned but embraced by adult educators committed to social change. Provocative, engaging, and above all practical, Teaching Defiance is sure to inspire and reinvigorate the praxis of activist adult education."
Sharan Merriam, professor of adult education, University of Georgia, co–editor, Global Issues and Adult Education

"Newman defines defiance as taking control daring and bold resistance to arbitrary authority and taken–for–granted ideologies. He involves readers in learning to challenge acquired frames of reference and established social and political assumptions. Readers are assisted to use rational discourse to analyze and negotiate personal and collective change and to construct their own morality."
Jack Mezirow, professor emeritus, Teachers College, Columbia University; editor, Learning as Transformation

"The greatest contribution of this book is its inspiration to all still hoping to make a difference, stemming from an adult educator bursting with energy and fully committed to confrontation and continuous rebellion."
Tara Fenwick, associate professor, University of Alberta; editor, Sociocultural Perspectives on Learning through Work
