            Critical Ethnography and Education: Theory, Method, and Social Justice (Hardback)

            The important contribution of this international methodological and practical guide to doing critical ethnographic work in education settings is its original approach to addressing the theory/method interface in relation to current concerns of social justice and (in)equality in e...ducation, along with their ethical implications. It takes a broad view of education as including both educational institutions as well as community education and the learning that goes on in public spaces, families and other out-of-school contexts. Drawing throughout on existing critical ethnographic work as exemplars and including vignettes of the intersection of theory, method and educational practice(s), the book accomplishes two key aims: it provides an overarching thematic and historical overview of critical ethnography in education, and at the same time addresses contemporary issues of power and inequality, and their often complex intersectionality in education. The central premise is that connecting a theory-of-method and a method of theorizing that effectively interweaves social theory with and throughout the research process is essential to address the hard questions and challenges associated with key issues of social justice in education.

            The bestselling author of the Sea of Freedom Trilogy returns with a sweeping family saga of two women in nineteenth-century New Zealand and their epic journey to survive in a world of their own making. It's 1837, and immigrating to a small New Zealand fishing village is an opport...unity for Ida Lange's family to build a better future. Yet for Ida, raised in a strict, religious, tight-knit German community, so much is still forbidden to a woman. Yearning for the poor day laborer she shared books with as a child, Ida is now trapped in a dire marriage to a man of her father's choosing. For Cat, who came of age in New Zealand under brutal conditions, life in the colonies hasn't been easy. Through a strange turn of events, she is adopted by a native Maori tribe, and she begins to thrive. But when she challenges the traditions of her tribe, she's banished, and left once again to rely on the only person she can trust with her future: herself. When fate brings Ida and Cat together, they recognize in each other a kindred spirit. Out of common ground grows an enduring friendship that will not be broken by the hardships of the plains, threats from the past, or the trials of family and heartache. What they'll discover is the depth of their own strength and resilience as they get nearer to the freedom they desire and demand. And their journey is just beginning.
