Summary Following the success of the widely acclaimed Critical Race Theory and Education: a Marxist Response (Palgrave, 2009), this new book by Mike Cole extends Marxist analysis to include key concepts from the work of neo-Marxists Antonio Gramsci and Louis Althusser. Cole begins by addressing what is distinctive about a neo-Marxist analysis. He then provides his own broad definition of racism and examines the differences between schooling and education, while outlining some practical antiracist classroom strategies for use in the U.K. and the U.S.
