Tuck, Eve, and K. Wayne Yang. 2018. Toward What Justice? Describing Diverse Dreams of Justice in Education. Milton: Taylor and Francis.


Abstract: "Toward What Justice? brings together compelling ideas from a wide range of intellectual traditions in education to discuss corresponding and sometimes competing definitions of justice. Leading scholars articulate new ideas and challenge entrenched views of what justice means when considered from the perspectives of diverse communities. Their chapters, written boldly and pressing directly into the difficult and even strained questions of justice, reflect on the contingencies and incongruences at work when considering what justice wants and requires. At its heart, Toward What Justice? is a book about justice projects, and the incommensurable investments that social justice projects can make. It is a must-have volume for scholars and students working at the intersection of education and Indigenous studies, critical disability studies, climate change research, queer studies, and more."

Critical Commentary

Angela Okune: This 2018 collective volume by Eve Tuck and Wayne Yang looks at the concept of "social justice," especially as used in the field of education to understand presumed shared notions about the term and its use.
