Editorial Reviews


“Girls are in the news, historically speaking! This excellent anthology on girls’ secondary education across Europe brings together a transatlantic cast of contributors. The authors, all pioneering scholars in their fields, address historical developments over 300 years in areas that include most of Europe. Their essays are carefully synchronized, both with respect to earlier historiography and with an eye to the contextual settings – religion, nationalism, and colonial expansion – in which educators could establish schooling opportunities for girls beyond the primary level. The editors’ introductory and concluding essays draw the book together nicely. This collection greatly extends our knowledge and provides a platform for further comparative analysis.”--Karen Offen, Historian & Senior Scholar, The Michelle Clayman Institute for Gender Research, Stanford University

“Written by leading scholars in their fields, this impressive study of girls’ secondary education in Europe has filled a significant gap in the history of education and in women’s and gender history. Readers will welcome enthusiastically the up-to-date historiography in each chapter, the succinct but searching analyses of developments, the thematic coherence, the inclusion of colonial developments and transnational networks, and the thoughtful probing of the gender and class, religious and political factors which have helped or impeded progress in the diverse countries of Europe.”—Ruth Watts, Emeritus Professor of History of Education, University of Birmingham, U.K.
