The 26 essays in this volume raise the questions of symbolic domination, education and linguistic difference, focusing on educational practices that challenge the social order, as schools are considered the primary arenas of today's struggle for linguistic domination, both in developed countries, where minorities claim for recognition and equality, and in the post- or neocolonial world, where the struggle for national identity consciousness uses the medium of education.
