Taking a fresh look at questions that have long troubled teachers committed to social change, No Angel in the Classroom provides a richly conceptualized and down-to-earth account of feminist teaching in higher education. Long-time feminist educator, Berenice Malka Fisher, gives a nuanced interpretation of second wave feminist consciousness-raising that bridges the gap between feminist activism and the academy. Candid classroom stories bring out the myths embedded in many activist ideals of the 1970s, while Fisher's informed analysis builds on these tensions, offering a complex amount of experience, emotion, thought, and action in feminist teaching.

Berenice Malka Fisher is professor of educational philosophy at New York University. She is chair of the School of Education's Women's Studies Commission & directs the university's Faculty Seminar on Teaching Social Justice.
