Andrew Miller’s new book, Raging against the Mass-Schooling Machine: An Autoethnography of a Beginning Teacher, is a compelling first-person account of the author’s struggle to transform his teaching identity and pedagogical practice by unpacking the bruising encounters that shaped him as a student.

The book blends autoethnographic reflections, artworks, and scholarly research to challenge the taken-for-granted assumptions of teacher training and mass-schooling. In doing so, it also resists many of the traditional expectations of scholarly research. The book has been published by Sense Publishers in their Transgressions: Cultural Studies and Education series, edited by Shirley R. Steinberg.
