Tom Brown's New World: North American Versions of the English Public School.
Heeney, Brian
Journal of Educational Thought, v12 n3 p219-27 Dec 1978
Heeney critiques two works on, respectively, American and Canadian independent schools: "The Elite Schools" by Leonard Baird and "A Question of Privilege" by Carolyn Gossage. He discusses the social context of their historical model, the English public school, and draws comparisons to the schools described in these two works. (SJL)
