The Quarterly Journal of Education was a pioneering enterprise set up to address the key educational issues of the day. Published in ten volumes from 1830 to 1835, the journal is a treasure trove of articles providing critical evaluations of schools, universities, educational methods and systems, from elementary to university level. A particular feature is the wealth of information provided on educational systems and developments from around the world, including Russia, USA, France, Germany, Norway, Italy, India and eastern Europe. The journal drew upon the support and expertise of many leading academics of the time, whose contributions include articles on discipline in schools, the education of women, infant education, Public Schools including Eton, Harrow, Rugby, education without religious discrimination, and education of the deaf and dumb. The re-issue of this rare and rich resource will be welcomed by libraries and researchers in education, social history and related disciplines.
Routledge Library Editions re-issue volumes from the distinguished and extensive backlist of the many imprints associated with Routledge in the nineteenth and twentieth centuries: Kegan Paul, Trench & Trubner, Routledge & Kegan Paul, Methuen, Allen & Unwin and Routledge itself. Focusing mainly (but not exclusively) on the Humanities and Social Sciences, Routledge Library Editions offer the individual as well as the institutional purchaser the opportunity to acquire volumes by some of the greatest thinkers and authors of the last 120 years either on a title-by-title basis or as carefully selected mini-sets or extensive ‘libraries’ of 50+ volumes.
