Originally published in 1987. This volume focuses upon the emergence of the subject-matter of the American school.

This provides entrance to looking at the interplay between social, cultural, economic and professional interests that give form to contemporary school practices.

The historical detail enables understanding of how school knowledge is shaped and fashioned by issues of structural continuity and social transformation.
