This text takes as its standpoint the fact that wherever mass education spreads, it is accompanied by curriculum administrations attempting to institutionalize rules of who should be taught what and by whom. Curriculum administration history is one of the elements traceable in every national or local history of schooling, although it does not make up as significant a proportion of comparative educational research as might be expected. This book, in addressing national and international curriculum administration history, extends the scope of research, identifies major methodological or conceptional problems and draws conclusions as to appropriate lines of inquiry. These areas are covered with reference to both the case studies which make up the present volume and to other recent studies in curriculum administration history.

This collection of essays examines the history of curriculum development in a variety of countries in the 19th and 20th centuries. In the opinion of the editors, the work done in this field hitherto has been as inadequate as the subject is important.
