Discerning Critical Hope in Educational Studies is a thought-provoking and percipient book that draws its relevance from the context of crisis in which it is currently embedded. It offers a robust and critical engagement with the notion of hope in a society in dire need of positivity, critical thinking and practical strategies. The multifarious struggles, both symbolic and real, facing academics, practitioners and students in higher education today, could be interpreted as a dynamic interplay between hope and its counter-part, despair. The fulcrum however, around which ideological battles are being fought, is defined by a criticality, needed to rescue hope from its shadow self, hopelessness.
