    Discusses how the “Western” expeditions for accumulation of knowledge had educational implications that were imperialistic. The establishment of discourse perpetuates imperialistic notions!

    Worst book I ever had to read for classes! The author doesn't know how to puncuate properly - drives me batty. The Canadian author continually refers to the U.S. as America. If you know anything at all about Canadians/Canada, you know this is a huge no-no. It implies that the U.S. is the only country in both Americas with a right to call themselves Americans. Aside from those issues, Willinsky takes such a black/white view of the world that he ends up alienating readers. I had to read this for a Worst book I ever had to read for classes!

His occasional good points get lost in his strident writing. Unfortunate, because he does make some excellent points. Don't read this book! There are more concise and better written articles available on Eric or Jstor!
