Author John Willinsky discusses how the discovery of the New World inspired European culture with "the desire to take hold of the world . . . to enumerate, order, identify, and differentiate". LEARNING TO DIVIDE THE WORLD raises urgent questions about how colonialism gave rise to powerful ideas of race, culture, and nation that continue to influence us--and the children we are educating. 11 photos.
