While speaking directly into an undergraduate university context, this book should be required reading for anyone involved in education at any level. . . . Minister’s riveting, brilliant presentation is simultaneously sobering and inspiring; sobering because she intrepidly and incisively diagnoses what ails us as a society (of which we and our institutions are inescapably a part) but also inspiring because she firmly believes in and models the ways that classrooms, as the “soft flesh” of the university, can transform society. Honestly, between her analysis and her concrete, achievable strategies related to how we shape our classes in terms of both content and form, she equips us all to participate immediately and efficaciously in transformative education, no matter our starting point. She has left us with no excuse for timidity or failure. For that we owe her deep gratitude. This book isn’t just another interesting armchair read on pedagogical theory. Rather, it will make you change your syllabus and specific assignments for your courses right away.
