Missionaries and modernity: Education in the British Empire, 1830-1910

English | ISBN: 1526152975 | 2022 | 288 pages | PDF | 5 MB

This comprehensive survey of multi-colonial sites over the long time span clearly describes the missionary paradox that to draw in pupils they needed to provide secular education, but that secular education was seen to lead both to a moral crisis and to anti-British sentiments.
