A Short History of Education, Paperback / softback Book

A Short History of Education Paperback / softback


First published in 1919, this book addresses the history of education in England from the 4th century AD to the early years of the 20th century.

Adamson examines the impact of significant events, such as the Black Death, on contemporary systems of education, and stresses the role of the Church and the Roman Empire in shaping English education through the centuries.

The book was influential enough that it remained a classic long after publication and even after Adamson's death in 1945.

This book will be of value to those studying the history and development of the education of both men and women in England.
