Franklin (2004). Chapter 1 (The Real World Of Technology.)

“It is my conviction that nothing short of a global reformation of major social forces and of the social contract can end this historical period of profound and violent transformations, and give a manner of security to the world and to its citizens. … The viability of technology, like democracy, depends in the end on the practice of justice and on the enforcement of limits to power.” (p 5)

Marcuse (1991). The New Forms of Control. (One-Dimensional Man.)

Kellner (1991). Introduction to the Second Edition. (One-Dimensional Man.)

“The book contains a theory of ‘advanced industrial society’ that describes how changes in production, consumption, culture, and thought have produced an advanced state of conformity in which the production of needs and aspirations by the prevailing societal apparatus integrates individuals into the established societies. Marcuse describes what has become known as the ‘technological society,’ in which technology restructures labor and leisure, influencing life from the organization of labor to modes of thought. He also describes the mechanisms through which consumer capitalism integrates individuals into its world of thought and behavior.” (p xii)

Gilmartin (2009). Colonialism/Imperialism. (Key Concepts in Political Geography.)

“Edward Said wrote that imperialism involved ‘the practice, the theory and the attitudes of a dominating metropolitan centre ruling a distant territory’, while colonialism refers to the ‘implanting of settlements on a distant territory’ (Said 1993: 9). … Young is suggesting that imperialism is primarily a concept, and colonialism primarily a practice (Young 2001).” (p 116)

Pezone (2010). Multiculturalism is Not Enough.

“While it is important that we recognize the contributions of those like Delpit who alert us to school politics of culture and language, it is vital that we engage in analysis and action to address the structural relationships of power and domination in our society, including social, economic, _and_ cultural aspects, and how they impact educational systems.” (p 29)
