Demythologising the Missionaries: A Reassessment of the Functions and Relationships of Christian Missionary Education under Colonialism.
MacKenzie, Clayton G.
Comparative Education, v29 n1 p45-66 1993
Rejects views of missionary education as either an arm of colonial conquest or an agent of social amelioration. Suggests that relationships among missionaries, colonists, and indigenous peoples were complex and pragmatic, although the primary missionary objective of religious conversion necessarily involved assimilation of European values and customs.
