New book: Revisiting Vygotsky for Social Change

Very pleased to announce the publication of the second volume in our Peter Lang book series “(Post-)Critical Global Studies“: Revisiting Vygotsky for Social Change.

This book edited by Adolfo Tanzi Neto, Fernanda Liberali & Manolis Dafermos, brings together researchers from across different countries and disciplines, who are currently employing Vygotsky’s theory in order to understand and deal with new social challenges arising in our globalized and yet, deeply divided world. The chapters of this book shed light onto the foundational principles of Vygotsky’s theory while adding critical and social perspectives as a way of expanding Vygotsky’s legacy to global contemporary issues. Through a series of case studies from across so-called “Global North” and “Global South” settings, this books explores crises and dramatic life events; critical reflection, imagination and social change; social dynamics and human development; ethical-political issues, as well as activism and political engagement. The book has been published as a paperback, so that it can be easily purchased without being too expensive.
