Makiguchi and Gandhi explores ideas about Japanese educator Tsunesaburo Makiguchi (1871-1944) and Indian political leader Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948) as examples of inspiration for large mass movements in the 20th century. Based on research done in Japan, India, Hawai'i, and the United Kingdom, this book breaks new ground by examining and theorizing the fate of dissident thinkers and raises the question often asked by both Gandihan and Soka scholars alike- were they truly radical thinkers?

This book fills an existing gap within the practice of global citizenship education by offering Asian perspectives. In this book, Soka or value-creating education developed by the Japanese educators, Tsunesaburo Makiguchi (1871-1944) and Daisaku Ikeda (b. 1928) is compared to the ideas of the Indian political leader Mahatma Gandhi (1869-1948). This study of their respective thoughts and movements has a significant bearing on the three domains of learning within the global citizenship education conceptual dimensions of UNESCO – the cognitive, socio-emotional, and behavioral. This book deftly combines theoretical discussions with themes and suggestions for practice and future research.

Makiguchi Tsunesaburo (1871-1944) was a Japanese schoolteacher, principal, educational philosopher, and Buddhist war resister. The progenitor of the value-creating (soka) pedagogy that inspires thousands of teachers worldwide and informs the network of 15 Soka schools, universities, and a women’s college across seven countries in Asia and the Americas, Makiguchi has emerged as an important figure in international education, curriculum studies, and instructional practice. Few educators in the global academy, however, know of Makiguchi’s extensive and lifelong work in language education. This edited volume, including a translation of an early Makiguchi essay heretofore unavailable in English, presents theoretical and empirical analyses of Makiguchi’s perspectives and practices relative to language, identity, and education in historical and contemporary contexts. First published as a special issue of Journal of Language, Identity and Education, this volume includes a new preface and three new chapters. Makiguchi Tsunesaburo in the Context of Language, Identity, and Education advances the field of Makiguchi studies and is indispensable for scholars and practitioners engaged in language and literacy education, international perspectives in education, and curriculum theorizing.

This edited volume focuses on the life and work of Makiguchi Tsunesaburo (1871-1944), a Japanese elementary schoolteacher, principal, educational philosopher, author, activist, and Buddhist war resister who has emerged as an important figure in international education. Makiguchi is the progenitor of value-creating (soka) pedagogy that informs practice in the Soka schools network, which includes two universities (in Japan and the U.S.), a women's college (Japan), two secondary schools (Japan), three elementary schools (Brazil and Japan), and six Kindergartens (Brazil, Hong Kong, Japan, Korea, Malaysia, and Singapore), as well as one of Japan's largest correspondence education programs. In addition, thousands of educators worldwide incorporate Makiguchi's ideas in their own curriculum and instruction, and Brazil has instituted the Makiguchi in Action Project, which has provided literacy training and teacher development for nearly a million people. This edited volume is the first in the Anglophone literature to theoretically and empirically examine the nature and global application of Makiguchi's influential educational ideas. The book was originally published as a special issue of American Educational Studies.
