Against the New Authoritarianism: Politics After Abu Ghraib


Product Information

This book traces the US descent into authoritarianism, characterised by ruthless market fundamentalism, religious correctness that substitutes blind faith for critical reason, the growing miltarisation of everyday life and corporate control of all elements of the dominant media. Critical education, which could serve as a foundation for an engaged citizenry and a vibrant democracy, is relentlessly attacked. Giroux examines the tragic events of Abu Ghraib and the conditions that made them possible, all the while trying to understand the role that education plays in creating or preventing the human rights violations typical of authoritarian regimes.
