Cover for KARIER: The Individual, Society, and Education: A History of American Educational Ideas

The Individual, Society, and Education

A History of American Educational Ideas

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 Manoa

"This new edition should have great use as a primary text at the graduate and advanced undergraduate levels."
--- Peter A. Sola, School of Education, Howard University
