9780415948906: The Struggle for the American Curriculum, 1893-1958

Published in 1987, the first edition of The Struggle for the American Curriculum was a classic in curriculum studies and in the history of education. This new third edition is thoroughly revised and updated, and includes two new chapters on the renewed attacks on the subject curriculum in the 1940s and 1950s, as well as the way individual school subjects evolved over time and were affected by these attacks.

About the Author:

Herbert M. Kliebard is Professor Emeritus of Educational Policy Studies and Curriculum and Instruction at the University of Wisconsin at Madison. He is the author of Schooled to Work: Vocationalism and the American Curriculum, 1876-1946.

Review:

"Almost by definition, a classic text resists revision. But Herbert Kliebard's "Struggle for the American Curriculum is a welcome exception. Retaining its focus upon conflicts between curriculum theorists, Kliebard's latest edition adds new chapters about changes in school subjects themselves. The result is a lot like Herb Kliebard himself: concise, witty, graceful, and wise. Kliebard is a gentleman as well as a scholar, and it shows."
-Jonathan Zimmerman, New York University
"Kliebard's book has many strengths: it is lucidly written and the author discusses a wide range of issues and people in a succinct, fair, and scholarly manner. For these reasons alone it should appeal to a wide audience."
Praise for the previous editions
-Harvard Educational Review
"Just as Kliebard's was an impressive voice calling for the study of curriculum history, so his own response to that need is impressive. "The Struggle for the American Curriculum, 1893-1958 is well-researched and gracefully written, insightful as well as interesting."
Praise for the previous editions
-Teachers College Record
