Empire and Education in Africa brings together a rich body of scholarship on the history of education in colonial Africa. The book examines similarities and differences in approaches to education across a broad geographical and chronological framework, from the 1850s to the late 20th century. The chapters highlight some central concerns in writing histories of education that transcend geographic or imperial boundaries. The text addresses the relationship between voluntary societies' role in education provision and state education. The book also deals with 'adapted' education: what kind of education was appropriate to African people or African contexts, and how did this differ across and between colonial contexts? The contributors emphasise the impact of political, social and economic change on the nature and scale of educational provision. The rise of democracy, nationalism and radical politics, industrial revolution, urban society and the advent of social science all had an influence on the emergence of educational policy as a distinct field by the middle of the twentieth century. All these issues had an impact in the colonial context. Many of the chapters deal with issues of gender in colonial education, showing how issues of gender were central to education provision in Africa.
