Leonardo Z. Handbook of cultural politics and education. Rotterdam, The Netherlands ; Boston: Sense Publishers; 2010.

"The Handbook is part of the appraisal of an opening created by interdisciplinary writings on such themes as representation, civil society, cultural struggle, subjectivity, and media within the context of education.

Spring JH. Wheels in the head : educational philosophies of authority, freedom, and culture from Confucianism to human rights. Vol 3rd. New York, NY: Lawrence Erlbaum Associates; 2008.

"In this popular text Joel Spring provocatively analyzes the ideas of traditional and non-traditional philosophies from Confucianism to human rights regarding the contribution of education to the creation of a democratic society. The goal is to explore how governments use education to control and manage their populations, and to examine forms of education that claim to free people from authoritarian control."
