Mini-Set H: History of Education will include a trilogy of titles from Editor J. A. Mangan

Part of our upcoming multivolume Education collection, Routledge Library Editions: Mini-set H: History of Education re-issues 24 volumes which span a century of publishing: 1900–1995.

The volumes within this collection cover education in Ancient Rome, Irish education in the 19th century, schools in Victorian Britain, changing patterns in higher education, secondary education in post-war Britain, education and the British colonial experience and the history of educational theory and reform.

This fascinating mini-set will include a trilogy of titles from distinguished scholar and author J. A. Mangan.

The Imperial Curriculum
This volume presents the first comparative analysis of racial attitudes in the formal schooling of both Britain and its former dominions and colonies. The various contributions examine the issue right across the British imperial experience – with case studies ranging from Canada, Ireland, East and South Africa, through the Indian subcontinent to Australia and New Zealand.

Making Imperial Mentalities
This book discusses the way in which those born into the British Empire were persuaded to accept it, oftentimes with enthusiasm. The study compares the perceptions of people at ‘home’, in the dominions and in the colonies.

Benefits Bestowed?
This volume concentrates on the processes and practices of formal education, which shaped, and was shaped by, imperial values, attitudes and behavior. The book features chapters by educationalists, historians and sociologists on education as a cornerstone in the construction of imperial control.

This multi-volume mini set and each of the above titles will be available in December – pre-order now!
