The Text and Cultural Politics.
Apple, Michael W.
Journal of Educational Thought/Revue de la Pensee Educative, v24 n3a p17-33 Dec 1990
Argues that textbooks legitimate selective forms of knowledge underlying supposedly democratic reforms heavily influenced by conservative economic/political forces and eclipsing the historical experiences and cultural expression of the less powerful. Views textbooks as part of social construction of reality. Calls for politicized, multiple readings of the various contexts of texts. (DMM)
