Verhine, Robert E.
Comparative Education Review, v39 n2 p219-24 May 1995
Reviews a 15-article anthology that examines the history of education in Latin America, emphasizing the relationships between education and social change while viewing education very broadly as a method for dispersing messages and as part of "expanding systems of communication." Four main sections cover the colonial legacy and 19th century, universities in ferment, revolution, and problems of institutionalization. (SV)
