Mass Education and the Limits of State Building, C.1870-1930 Hardback
Edited by Laurence Brockliss, Nicola Sheldon
The first comparative study of the spread of mass education around the world in the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries, this unique new book uses a bottom-up focus and demonstrates, to an extent not appreciated hitherto, the gulf between the intentions of the government and the reality on the ground.
