A Loving Memoir of Richard A. Brosio, Ph.D.
I first met Richard Brosio when we were graduate students at The University of Michigan in the late 1960s, and we collaborated over the next four decades around our mutual commitment to the crucial role of the social foundations of education in teacher preparation and to advocate for educational equity, justice for all, and true democracy as an antidote to capitalist hegemony. Richard brought to these efforts great intellectual prowess, focused energy, political insight, and personal courage. These same qualities are central to this powerful book by his wife Martha in which she describes Richard’s end-of-life choices in the face of illness that robbed him of his skillful powers of communication. The book also highlights his teaching and writing and their life together. It is a monumental love story. It is sad, yet inspirational. It is also joyful, as it celebrates his life and their time together. It causes me to admire both Richard and Martha all the more.

Public Education after Neoliberalism
"Researching Resistance is a narrative of reinvention--both Dr. Huckaby's own and a model for societal reinvention--on multiple levels. It lays out a pathway of possible reinvention for ourselves as an education community and for society as a whole. And, believe me--Dr. Huckaby is unflinching. There is a lot in the book, both in history and in the present and future, that is really painful, and these realities are confronted unflinchingly. It is also grounded, intellectual, innovative, compassionate, joyful, pedagogic, brave, and inspiring. I sense Dr. Huckaby's joy in this work and her joy from participants as well. These are painful, hard things she is writing about. And yet there is joy here."

Women Resisting the Contradictions of Silence and Voice
“In the #MeToo Era, Tarana Burke, Anita Hill, Alicia Garza, Patrisse Cullors, Opal Tometi, and so many other Black women have been ignored, forgotten, and erased. This volume reminds us that it was Black women who led and continue to lead the nation—indeed the world—toward human freedom and liberation. This volume is a masterpiece that belongs on the shelves of EVERY Black woman and anyone who claims to care about justice!”

A Primer for Concerned Educators
"Philanthropy, Hidden Strategy, and Collective Resistance makes a timely and critical contribution to conversations surrounding the impact of philanthropy on US education. As such, this text will be of interest to a diverse set of disciplines including, but not limited to: education and the sub-fields sociology of education, history of education, philosophy of education, and higher education; political science and sociology. In addition to its use as a teaching tool within higher education classrooms, this text will be of equal interest to educational researchers, policy-makers, educational philanthropists, and practitioners."
