The History of Education in Europe
Routledge – 2009 – 112 pages
There is a common tradition in European education going back to the Middle Ages which long played a part in providing the curriculum of schools which catered both for the wealthy and for able sons of less well-to-do families. Originally published in 1974, this volume examines the relationship between education and society in the different countries of Europe from which differences in tradition and practice emerge.
The countries discussed include: France, Germany, the former Soviet Union, Poland and Sweden.
