"I show how key elements of the education-based mode of study... emerged from contingent histories of struggles in opposition to alternative modes of studying and world-making. These arguments have particular relevance for people involved in social movements, which often frame education as part of solutions to the problems of capitalism. My book puts this assumption into question by showing how education was key to the emergence and spread of capitalism while intersecting with other practices, including colonialism, patriarchal oppression of women, and the violence of enclosures that composed the preconditions of capitalism."
