This book brings together thirty of the best essays from Radical Teacher. The journal is devoted to feminist and socialist approaches to teaching—to showing teachers how to democratize the classroom and empower students.

The articles included here have been chosen for their continuing usefulness to school and college teachers with emphasis on critical pedagogy as well as radical course content. These essays provide not only a wealth of ideas for teachers already involved in radical education but also an accessible, readable, and wide-ranging introduction for those new to it.
