This comprehensive overview of the history of education, from ancient times to the present day, is a thematic survey of the history of education throughout the world. From Confucius, the Greek and the Egyptians, Mark S. Johnson takes an integrated look at ancient education and the development of various education traditions separately. Examining the implications of empire for the history of education, he goes on to look at the rise of vocationalism and the decline (in some places) of religious education and the effects of globalization on education. Suitable for introductory courses and students new to the subject, it's a must for anyone studying the world history of education.
