This book offers contemporary perspectives on some of the most enduring problems facing social studies educators.

Contributors include Jane Bernard-Powers, Terrie L. Epstein, Ronald W. Evans, Stephen C. Fleury, David Hursh, Gloria Ladson-Billings, Sandra Mathison, Cameron McCarthy, Merry M. Merryfield, Nel Noddings, David Warren Saxe, and Michael Whelan.

"Leading-edge thinking and writing, sophisticated and timely." -- M. Eugene Gilliom, Ohio University

"To my mind, Wayne Ross is doing more than anyone else today in North America to keep alive (and, one hopes, to resurrect) social studies--the field certainly needs it. The authors represent the best in the social studies community today." -- Lynda Stone, University of North Carolina--Chapel Hill

"There are too few new books in the field that explore the range of topics and issues as this one does." -- Peter H. Martorella, North Carolina State University

E. Wayne Ross is Associate Professor in the School of Education and Human Development at State University of New York, Binghamton. He is coeditor of Teacher Personal Theorizing: Connecting Curriculum Practice, Theory, and Research, also published by SUNY Press.
