Scotland's democratic traditions, together with its early lead in literacy, make its educational system of great interest to historians. Professor Anderson examines the distinctive characteristics and the historical myths of Scottish popular education, placing them in a broader framework ofsocial, political, and intellectual history. Among the topics covered are: the development of Scottish educational thought in the early 19th century, the extent of schooling and literacy before education became compulsory in 1872, the role of education in late Victorian and Edwardian ideas oncitizenship and democracy, and the neglected history of technical education. This authoritative, up-to-date study will become the standard work of reference for historians working in this field, and for all interested in modern Scottish history.

Editorial Reviews

`positions his views in an impressive amount of new research and with thoughtful analysis of an expanding and in some areas controversial literature on the subject ... It is likely to prove a powerful weapon in the armoury of revisionism in the new Scottish history, embedded as it increasinglyis in a comparative framework drawn from the European experience as much as that of other countries in the British Isles. This is an important book and likely to become the standard work on the subject.'Ian Donnachie, The Open University, The Historical Association 1997
