Abstract: Mike Cole's new book Marxism and Educational Theory: Origins and issues (2008, London: Routledge) impressively explores in one particular chapter theories and issues of imperialism and their relationship to ideology and education. This review suggests that such a compendium-style treatment may increase ambiguity. This may be at the expense of presenting a simple dialectical analysis immediately useful for Marxist educators wishing to take up Cole's five prescriptions for making students critically aware of imperialism.
