520 8  A host of international organizations promotes the belief 
       that education will empower Kenya's Maasai girls. Yet the 
       ideas that animate their campaigns often arise from 
       presumptions that reduce the girls themselves to helpless 
       victims of gender-related forms of oppression. Heather D. 
       Switzer's interviews with over 100 Kenyan Maasai 
       schoolgirls challenge the widespread view of education as 
       a silver bullet solution to global poverty. In their own 
       voices, the girls offer incisive insights into their 
       commitments, aspirations, and desires. Switzer weaves this
       ethnographic material into an astute analysis of 
       historical literature, education and development documents,
       and theoretical literature.
