A Cultural History of Education is the first comprehensive and interdisciplinary overview of the cultural history of education from ancient times to the present day. With six illustrated volumes covering 2800 years of human history, this is the definitive reference work on the subject, comprising:
1. A Cultural History of Education in Antiquity (500 BC - 500 AD)
2. A Cultural History of Education in the Medieval Age (500 - 1450)
3. A Cultural History of Education in the Renaissance (1450 - 1650)
4. A Cultural History of Education in the Age of Enlightenment (1650 - 1800)
5. A Cultural History of Education in the Age of Empire (1800 - 1920)
6. A Cultural History of Education in the Modern Age (1920 - present)
Each volume adopts the same thematic structure, covering: church, religion and morality; knowledge, media and communications; children and childhood; family, community and sociability; learners and learning; teachers and teaching; literacies; life-histories. This enables readers to trace one theme throughout history, as well as providing them with a thorough overview of each individual period.
