When Paulo Freire died in May 1997, he was arguably in his intellectual prime. Having fi rst gained international recognition for his work in adult literacy programs in Brazil and Chile in the 1960s and for the publication of his classic text Pedagogy of the Oppressed (Freire, 1972a), Freire had, in the last decade of his life, enjoyed a strong “second wind” of publishing activity. He averaged more than a book a year in this period. In his sixties, Freire had also become active in Brazilian politics again. His work has continued to generate interest and debate in the years following his death. Since 1997, Freire has provided the focus for a considerable number of authored books and edited collections (e.g., Coben, 1998; O’Cadiz, Wong, and Torres, 1998; Mayo, 1999, 2004; Roberts, 1999, ed., 2000; McLaren, 2000; Dallaire, 2001; Darder, 2002; Morrow and Torres, 2002; Slater, Fain, and Rossatto, 2002; Bowers and Apffel-Marglin, 2005; Rossatto, 2005; Torres and Noguera, 2008), along with numerous conference papers and journal articles.
