Overview

A substantial revision of Curriculum Books: The First Eighty Years, this new volume is a comprehensive presentation of curriculum books that have contributed to theoretical and practical discourse about curriculum throughout the twentieth century. Following an introduction that explains the book's purpose and how it was constructed, the authors present each decade in a chapter that provides contextual reminders about the social, political, and cultural events of the time period, discussion of salient events in curriculum discourse, and a comprehensive bibliography (by year) of curriculum books. More than 3,000 curriculum books are weaved into this presentation. The original and updated conclusions are offered to provide interpretative perspective on curricular trends, state of the field, and possibilities for the future of curriculum studies.

Editorial Reviews

Booknews
This edition expands on the original publication from the late-1970s, . It covers some 3,000 curriculum books appearing in the U.S. from roughly 1900 to 2000, used to educate school administrators, teachers, aspiring educators, educational scholars, and the wider public about curriculum. Each chapter focuses on a single decade, providing background on the sociocultural, intellectual, artistic, and scientific developments of the time; a discussion of major curriculum movements, trends, books, and authors; and yearly bibliographies of curriculum books published in that decade. The second edition includes two new chapters covering the 1980s and 1990s, new commentary woven into the original introduction, and a new concluding chapter. Annotation c.
