Revolutionary Education in China : Documents and Commentary
Originally published in 1973, this title analyses revolutionary changes in the Chinese education system and illustrates China’s radical departure from both traditional and Western goals. In his extensive introduction, Peter J. Seybolt puts the transformation of education in the context of China’s socio-economic development and offers insight into why educational reform is at the heart of Chinese society’s radical progress. Additionally, this volume offers valuable historical background as well as a biographical guide and a glossary allowing for a fuller understanding of both historical and modern issues. This is an ideal title for students interested in Asian Studies and History.
