Across much of the world there is now a standard secondary school curriculum based on a traditional array of subjects. This is the first work to tell the story of its invention, from the sixteenth century until the present day. The book concludes with a sketch of an alternative: a curriculum based on a well-argued set of fundamental aims.
JOHN WHITE Emeritus Professor of Philosophy of Education at the Institute of Education, University of London, UK.
