ANNOTATION

In this "spoken" book, Paulo Freire and Antonio Faundez engage in a stimulating dialogue on a variety of topics, from the relation of education and the liberation of oppressed people in the Third World to the part played by popular culture as a means of resisting domination. In so doing, Freire here expands on many of the ideas expressed in his ground-breaking book, Pedagogy of the Oppressed. Both men have experienced the role of exile-Freire from Brazil, Faundez from Chile-and they share with each other the devastating, disorienting experience of exile, as well as the enrichment and new perspectives it brings to those who accept its challenges. Though their experiences as exiles are often reflected on with humor, both men meditate on how they remained deeply involved in, and committed to, popular education in the Third World. They describe their methods used in literacy campaigns, which each regards as a key element in liberation and the preservation of a people's identity. Here are vivid personal anecdotes, compelling philosophical reflections that above all manifest a profound understanding of the cause of liberation of the oppressed.
