“I trust no one more than Gerassi to make me understand America,”
Jean-Paul Sartre
Unrepentant Critical Pedagogy encompasses the life, times, and activism of John ‘Tito’ Gerassi. A lifelong political animal and radical educator, Tito has lived his critical pedagogy on the barricades and front lines of the Movement; as a newsman for Time, Newsweek, and The New York Times; as a blacklisted professor exiled in Europe; as a Korean War Green Beret; as best selling author of The Great Fear in Latin America and nine other books. Major historical figures in Tito’s life include Herbert Marcuse and Michel Foucault, Che Guevara and the Black Panthers, Simone deBeauvoir and Jean-Paul Sartre, and his own father, the artist and Spanish Civil War Republican General Fernando Gerassi. Unrepentant Critical Pedagogy gathers together a collection of previously unpublished and out of print essays and articles by Tito. There are also three new interviews with John Gerassi by Tony Monchinski examining Tito’s life, his time in the Movement, and his critical pedagogy.
