This book – written with theoretical rigour, sociological sensibility and poetic beauty – reveals the intensity of classroom lectures and dialogues. In the age of 'virtual intimacy', the author retains the courage to celebrate the spirit of direct, face-to-face classroom interactions. As he delivers a series of lectures on education, pedagogy and cultural politics, and engages with his students at Jawaharlal Nehru University, the book begins to take its shape. It invites the readers to raise critical questions, sharpen their socio-political vision, and reflect on educational practices and pedagogic possibilities. A book of this kind written with extraordinary clarity and lucidity ought to be read by all those who are interested in the culture of learning.
