Surviving Economic Crises through Education. Global Studies in Education, Volume 11
Cole, David R., Ed.
Peter Lang New York
This book comes at a time of increasing anxiety about the repercussions of financial instability and the probability of widespread market volatility. The educators and researchers whose work is collected here have considered these factors deeply when constructing their responses to prevailing financial conditions. These views guide the reader through economic crises as a mode of survival and as a means to deploying education at its most meaningful and intense. The approach aligns practice with theory and takes the empirical evidence from these studies as a means to determining the economic influence on education. This book will be a valuable asset for teachers and professors, as well as an excellent textbook for undergraduate and graduate classrooms.

Cole); (2) "Knowledge Economy", Economic Crisis and Cognitive Capitalism: Public Education and the Promise of Open Science (Michael A.
