"Despite Canada’s claim to be a gender equitable nation, militarism continues to function in ways that protect inequality." —from the Introduction

Little has been done to examine, critique, and challenge how ingrained societal ideas of militarism and gender influence lifelong learning patterns and practices of Canadians. Editor Nancy Taber and nine other contributors explore various reasons why Canadian educators should be concerned with how learning, militarism, and gender intersect. Readers may be surprised to discover how this reaches beyond the classroom into the everyday lessons, attitudes, and habits that all Canadians are taught, often without question. Pushing the boundaries of education theory, research, and practice, this book will be of particular interest to feminist, adult, and teacher educators and to scholars and students of education, the military, and women’s and gender studies.

Important societal critique of how gender and militarism intersect in Canadians’ daily learning.
