Mass Education and the Limits of State Building, c.1870-1930

by Laurence Brockliss

Mass Education and the Limits of State Building, c.1870-1930 Synopsis

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.
