A Later Printing. From the cover: Originally published in 1973, this book describes the medieval origins of the British education system, and the transformations successive historical events such as the Reformation, the Civil War and the Industrial Revolution have wrought on it. It examines the effect on the educational pattern of such major cultural upheavals as the Renaissance; it looks at the different parts played by church and state, and the influence of new social and educational philosophies.
