Teaching Modernization : Spanish and Latin American Educational Reform in the Cold War, Hardback Book

Teaching Modernization : Spanish and Latin American Educational Reform in the Cold War Hardback

Edited by Oscar J. Martin Garcia, Lorenzo Delgado Gomez-Escalonilla

Part of the Studies in Latin American and Spanish History series

Description

In the 1960s and 1970s, the educational systems in Spain and Latin America underwent comprehensive and ambitious reforms that took place amid a "revolution of expectations" arising from decolonization, global student protests, and the antagonism between capitalist and communist models of development.

Deploying new archival research and innovative perspectives, the contributions to this volume examine the influence of transnational forces during the cultural Cold War.

They shed new light on the roles played by the United States, non-state actors, international organizations and theories of modernization and human capital in educational reform efforts in the developing Hispanic world.
