ABOUT THIS BOOK
This is an updated version of Karier's highly regarded Man, Society,
and Education, which focuses on the concepts of human nature and community
throughout American educational history. For the new edition, Karier has
added chapters on the major movements in American education from World
War II to the present and on the major Supreme Court cases involving educational
policy during the same period.
"This classic volume remains a remarkable study in the history of
ideas into which the implications for American schooling have been deftly
woven. It is balanced, thorough, and intelligently challenging."
--- Ann M. Keppel, College of Education, University of Hawaii at
"This new edition should have great use as a primary text at the
graduate and advanced undergraduate levels."
