Citizenship under Fire:
Democratic Education in Times of Conflict
Sigal R. Ben-Porath

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [HTML] or [PDF format]

ADDITIONAL ENDORSEMENTS:

"This timely book addresses a host of pressing issues, from teaching history and civics to accommodating diversity and dissent. Combining insights from feminist thought, multicultural theory, and democratic education, Ben-Porath offers an admirably balanced and insightful account of the complex demands that democracies face in time of war."--Amy Gutmann, University of Pennsylvania

"This book has all the ingredients of a classic text: it opens a new line of scholarly inquiry that, afterwards, seems hard to believe hadn't been opened before. Ben-Porath's main theme--civic education during wartime--has never been addressed in as comprehensive and inventive a manner."--Rob Reich, Stanford University

"Engaging and original. This book deals with important themes in a way that engages with a wide range of literature and literatures. The topic is timely and what the author has to say about it is important."--Harry Brighouse, University of Wisconsin, Madison
