The integrated courses such as “Psycho-philosophical Foundations of Education”
and “Socio-philosophical Foundations of Education” attempt to combine more
effectively the interpretative and practical aspects of the foundations.

The notion of resistance resides as a deep-seated premise underpinning the democratic foundation of the United States. Given the distinctive standing of public education in the U.S., this book explores the multiple roles---and numerous contexts---that resistance plays in contemporary educational settings. Resistance in education creates, or reflects, the multiple counter-discourses that arise to challenge the one or more dominant discourses in any given educational setting. There is potency in the plurality of the varied and sometimes controversial arguments provided by each essay in this volume, which should be read by everyone interested in the concept within the framework of education today. "It is possible to say that resistance in education has always been resisted; the point, of course, is who is doing the resisting. Why they are resisting, what they are resisting, and whose interests are being served by these acts of resistance. David M. Moss and Terry A. Osborn's provocative collection of essays on educational resistance gives new scope and meaning to the term `resistance' in the context of today's challenges to and on behalf of social justice education. It is an important contribution to the field of critical education."---Peter McLaren, Graduate School of Education and Information Studies, University of California, Los Angeles

This fifth and concluding volume of ?The Early Works of John Dewey” is the only one of the series made up entirely of essays. The appearance during the four-year period, 1895?98, of thirty-eight items amply indicates that Dewey continued to maintain a high level of published output. These were the years of Dewey's most extensive work and involvement at the University of Chicago. Like its predecessors in this series, this volume presents a ?clear text,” free of interpretive or reference material. Apparatus, including references, corrections, and emendations, is confined to appendix material. Fredson Bowers, the Consulting Textual Editor, has provided an essay on the textual principles and procedures, and William P. McKenzie, Professor of Philosophy and Education at Southern Illinois University, has written an introduction identifying the thread connecting the apparently diffuse material in the many articles of this volume?Dewey's attempt to unite philosophy with psychology and sociology and with education.
The first two volumes consist of A-Z entries, featuring essays representing the major disciplines including philosophy, history, and sociology, and a third volume is made up of documentary, photographic, and visual resources.
