This book of essays is a survey of recent developments in the history and historiography of American education. It highlights disagreements among practitioners of the art, significant research, book reviews, and contributions of history to the broader study of American education. Specific topics covered include: public education and the education of the public; the history of education as a field of study; the history of compulsory schooling; public education and political community; school reform and social class; social reform and the urban school; minority group education; the school achievement of immigrant children; the immigrant experience in adult education; the history of an urban system of school governance; pedagogy as intrusion (teaching values in popular primary schools in nineteenth century America); and historiographical perspectives. Authors of individual essays include educational historians of note such as Lawrence Cremin, R. Freeman Butts, Diane Ravitch, Maxine Greene, and others. (Author/MC)
