Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"Evans' book is a fascinating tour of the competing forces that have shaped social studies curriculum in the United States. It offers one important reminder after another that what schools teach about the nature of society has always been a contested terrain."
--Bill Bigelow, co-editor, Rethinking Globalization: Teaching for Justice in an Unjust World

"This history is told through the eyes of an issues-centered educator. It is MUST READING for all social studies educators."
--Anna S. Ochoa-Becker, Professor Emeritus, School of Education, Indiana University --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
