This volume concentrates on the processes and practices of formal education, which shaped, and were shaped by, imperial values, attitudes and behaviour. It is concerned with:

  • The myths and visions of imperialism;
  • The nature and extent of ethnocentric attitudes, declared and undeclared;
  • The use of education as a means of disseminating and reinforcing imperial images;
  • The changing concept of imperialism as reflected in the emphases of educational literature
  • The different perceptions of imperialism in the various social and ethnic strata of metropolitan and overseas communities and education systems
  • The assimiliation, adaptation and rejection of metropolitan educational models
  • The issue of imperial education as enlightenment, hegemony and control.

The book features chapters by educationalists, historians and sociologists on education as a cornerstone in the construction of imperial control.
