About this product
- DescriptionA dynamic leader and visionary teacher/scholar, Joyce E. King has made important contributions to the kwledge base on preparing teachers for diversity, culturally connected teaching and learning, and inclusive transformative leadership for change, often in creative partnership with communities. Dr. King is internationally recognized for her invative interdisciplinary scholarship, teaching practice, and leadership. Her concept of dysconscious racism continues to influence research and practice in education and sociology in the U.S. and in other countries. This volume weaves together ten of her most influential writings and four invited reflections from prominent scholars on the major themes the work addresses. In the World Library of Educationalists, international scholars themselves compile career-long collections of what they judge to be their finest pieces-extracts from books, key articles, salient research findings, major theoretical and/or practical contributions-so the world can read them in a single manageable volume. Readers will be able to follow the themes and strands of their work and see their contribution to the development of a field.
