    This dictionary provides the reader with an easily accessible guide to the biographies of approximately 450 educationists. It covers the period from 1800 to the present day and includes a wide range of people who were active in promoting education at different levels.

    The book will be of value to educational and social historians, particularly where it deals with lesser known participants. Professor Brian Simon, University of Leicester

    "... I found this an interesting and useful compilation which will be of great value to both students and teachers." Historical Studies in Education

    "The book can be recommended to educationists and social historians as a useful reference source and a worthwhile addition to the literature of the subject." Gender and Education

    "The book has so many uses in the teaching of education. It is not just a reference book... it is also a very good indicator of where further research may be done, since with almost every entry there is a résumé of what commentaries have been written. It is a goldmine for those looking for dissertation and thesis topics. Every historian of education should have a copy near at hand for ready reference." Australia and New Zealand History of Education Review
