Kindergartens and Cultures: The Global Diffusion of an Idea


This book is a study of the diffusion and transformation of the kindergarten around the turn of the twentieth century, concentrating most centrally on the power of local cultures to respond to and reformulate borrowed ideas. Eleven case studies represent western and nonwestern national histories, various religious traditions, and a range of political systems, all of which embraced the kindergarten as a desirable educational form.
