Winner of the 2014 Critics Choice Book Award of the American Educational Studies Association How did the Founding Fathers and their generation think about public education? One place to look is the same place they did: American Philosophical Society Contest of 1795. Sponsored by the nation's premier research organization, the contest challenged writers to imagine a system of mass, public education suited to the 'genius' of America. In this book, leading historians team together to unpack the mystery and significance of the contest: the essays it produced, the men who wrote and reviewed them, and the broader landscape of ideas about nationhood, race, gender, religion, higher education and social reform of the early American republic. The book also includes two chapters on historical research methods and, for the first time ever in print, all seven of the original essays.
