Grieshaber, Susan J. (2001) Beating Mom: How to Win the Power Game. In Jipson, Janice A. & Johnson, Richard T. (Eds.) Resistance & Representation: Rethinking Childhood Education. Peter Lang, New York, pp. 223-238.

Abstract

Resistance & Representation: Rethinking Childhood Education is a collection of essays, the 12th volume in the Rethinking Education series. Both the volume and the series grow out of a position that challenges the "hegemony" of the psychologically based prevailing perspective in education, especially early childhood education. This edited volume includes chapters applying feminist, critical, multicultural, postcolonial and postmodern theories and methodologies. For the rest of the review, the term post modern will be used as a way to refer to these various theories. In addition to these closely allied theoretical positions, the editors also see the essays connected by a "shared commitment to creating social change and improving the lives of children." The aim of the book is to provide a place to present alternative representations of knowledge and considerations of issues of identity and theory making, as well as to examine resistances and reconceptualizations of traditional practice in early childhood education.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
