In Against the New Authoritarianism, Giroux divests Bush and America's thinly disguised rhetoric of being the world's defender of freedom and democracy to reveal the terrifying specter of proto-fascism. He follows Adorno's lead in suggesting that education, while being one of the many sites that disseminates the discourses of imperialism, nationalism, militarism, and violence, has the potential—and indeed, it is the solution—to identify, challenge, and destroy these unethical ideologies that threaten human freedom, peace, and democracy in America and around the world.
